The Sauber F1 Team is pleased to announce the extension of its partnership with Thomann Nutzfahrzeuge AG. Since 2010 the Swiss family-owned company has provided the Sauber F1 Team with semi-trailer tractors, trucks and transporters as Official Partner. After five years of a successful collaboration, the partnership will continue for another three years.
After the last Formula One race on European soil, which took place last weekend in Monza, the majority of the 25 vehicles (13 trucks and eight vans) will go into the “winter break”. The remaining vehicles will be used for transport within Switzerland. Since the beginning of the partnership, the vehicles provided by Thomann have covered more than 1.8 million kilometres on European roads. Every racing season some members of the race team travel reliably and safely for approximately 300,000 kilometres through Europe.
Monisha Kaltenborn, Team Principal, Sauber F1 Team: "As the logistical requirements are highly complex in the world of Formula One, we need to count on the reliability and quality of our partners. Our transport fleet provided by Thomann Nutzfahrzeuge AG has satisfactorily proved to have these attributes over the last five years. Because of this, we are pleased to continue our cooperation with the Swiss family-owned company for another three years."
Luzi Thomann, CEO, Thomann Nutzfahrzeuge AG: "We are pleased to continue our partnership with the Sauber F1 Team, which is based on mutual values. Two Swiss family-owned companies, two SMEs, two entrepreneurial thinking owners – this all contributes to a cooperation that functions perfectly. Moreover both companies have the culture of finding the best way to achieve things, which is also important for the relationship between us."
