With a shared love of speed, skill and success, Kaspersky Lab's relationship with Scuderia Ferrari continues to go from strength to strength. Extending far beyond the track, from team sponsorship to supporting the most talented young drivers.
Since Kaspersky Lab and Scuderia Ferrari first teamed up in 2010, the Kaspersky Lab logo has been proudly displayed on the nose cones of Scuderia Ferrari's Formula 1 cars, drivers' overalls, helmets and team uniforms. While we love sharing the glory on the track, Kaspersky Lab also works closely with Scuderia Ferrari behind the scenes as a technical partner and in 2016, a new five-year contract ensured that the relationship will continue on until at least 2021.
2015 also saw Kaspersky Motorsport play a role in the Blancpain GT Series, racing with the Ferrari 458 GT3 and in 2017 will bring even more amazing developments, as the Kaspersky Motorsport team will compete with the new Ferrari 488 GT3 model.
As we continue to build the Kaspersky Motorsport brand in 2017, we're finding innovative ways to make the experience more exciting and inspiring.
Through our cutting edge cybersecurity expertise, we're helping to keep professional racing secure. Protecting Scuderia Ferrari from cyber threats, so they can focus on creating some of the fastest cars in the world.
Aiming for the podium
Kaspersky Motorsport is working hard to help our team achieve the ambitious goal of a podium finish in the 2017 Blancpain GT Endurance Series. That includes recruiting pro-drivers Giancarlo Fisichella, James Calado and Marco Cioci, who are set for a full season behind the wheel of the Ferrari 488 GT3 in the Blancpain GT Endurance Cup.
Supporting the next generation
We're also committed to supporting talented young drivers and providing them with a platform for success. And it's already paying off. Ferrari Driver Academy member Antonio Fuoco has graduated to the F2 Series this year, where he is ready to challenge for the championship.
As well a being part of the action on the track, It gives Kaspersky Lab unique opportunities to learn about how motorsport data travels in the real world. Making this partnership about much more than racing.
It's a powerful research project that will help us innovate and improve Kaspersky Lab's own products and services. Enabling us to deliver a more powerful and comprehensive cybersecurity service.
