Wow, that’s some great response to the thread!
@catracho504 They have a Casio sticker on the front of the chassis, so I think that add Casio should suffice.
@andae23 Thanks a lot!
@bobthevulcan Do they actually sponsor McLaren or are they just suppliers? If they do give money for their space on the car then I will add then, but I’m trying to keep suppliers of the list, otherwise it will get huge.
@journeyer On Ferrari’s website Puma is listed as a supplier, while in Mercedes’ website it is listed as a ‘partner’, but on the same category as Pirelli, Allianz and some other brands that do not show up in the car at all, so I’m guessing they are only supppliers as well. Thanks for the Johnnie Walker tip, I missed their tiny logos on the mirrors!
@GeeMac I left them out for the same reason I left Puma out. It’s a lot easier with companies like Japan Rags or PepeJeans, but when they also supply the racing gear it becomes a bit blurry. I might add every supplier that appear on the cars just to be on the safe side. Regarding Genni, Red Bull and Fiat, I thought I should add them becuase, well, they do inject some money on the team and get a space on the car :P I could remove them if people feel they aren’t actually sponsoring anything.
@ned-flanders That would be awesome to do, but the only source of information I have are pictures and the only tool I have are my eyes and the patience to spot every sticker on the cars :P
@freelittlebirds I really don’t know about those. I thought about them but it was already way to late, I’ll do a little bit of research on that Mexico and Venezuela logos. That Italian flag on the 2011 Ferrari wasn’t any sort of deal, it was just Montezemolo trying to be a little patriotic.
So, this is the list for 2012. The names in red are new, and since I’m going backwards in time that means these sponsors are either no longer working in F1 or they logos are not appearing on the car. I few notes though: I combined Lucozade and Maximuscle into GlaxoSmithKline, as I didn’t want to create two separate industry categories for their producuts. I also grouped conglomerates like UB Group and America Movil on the list too, because honestly I don’t feel like they are separate sponsoring agreements, they are just one company trying to promote the many brands in their portfolio.
