Context: Puma becomes the fourth official provider with a Formula One contract, following in the footsteps of a similar deal with AlphaTauri, the Red Bull-owned brand responsible for dressing the Formula One team, including senior staff and Formula One presenters.
Comment: Stefano Domenicali, president and chief executive of Formula One, said: “As Formula One continues to grow around the world, we have been reaching new fans through exciting collaborations and are seeing the sport enter areas of mainstream culture we have not seen before. Puma has a rich history in motorsport, making them the perfect fit for Formula One as we take the sport’s apparel to the next level for fans on the street, drivers in the paddock, and everything else in between.”
Coming next: The full list of circuits where Puma will be selling through its subsidiary Stichd has not been revealed, but a statement from Nina Nix, chief executive of Stichd, revealed that the company will be there “from the hillsides of Zeltweg and Spa to the city centers of Monaco and Baku”.
