On 25 Nov 16, to coincide with the last Formula One Grand Prix of the season, MarcBiver, TAG Heuer Global Sports Director, and Christian Horner, Team Principal of Red Bull Racing, were joined by a number of guests and media on the Rooftop of the Yas Viceroy Hotel on Yas Island to jointly announce that Red Bull Racing will continue to run with TAG Heuer branded engines for two more years, through the 2018 season. They were joined by Daniel Ricciardo and, together, the three men pressed a button to start a clock counting down to the next Grand Prix, which will take place in Australia on 26 March 2017. This fantastic gesture symbolises the partnership between these two brands for the coming seasons.
Beyond the visibility generated simply by featuring in the team designation which appears throughout all race broadcasts, TAG Heuer can also be seen on the drivers’ helmets, their gloves, race suits, as well as on the team uniform and, of course, on the cars themselves; on the engine cover and chassis top. Naturally, the brand will also be supporting the team on their wrists — either with connected watches, with Formula 1 or with Carrera Heuer 01 models exclusive to the team.
TAG Heuer is also the founding partner and Official Timekeeper of the FIA Formula E Championship, Official Timekeeper of the legendary Carrera Panamericana and Pike's Peak in the USA, the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM) and the Monaco and Macau Grands Prix, the Indy 500 in Indianapolis, and the Patrick Dempsey Racing team and WTCC endurance race. Ayrton Senna and Steve McQueen also remain members of the TAG Heuer family of ambassadors.
