Interesting article form Polish business website:

Kubica breaks the bank. PKN Orlen counts the money already…

Robert Kubica is like the mythical Midas, whatever he’s touching, turns into gold. The return to Formula 1 and cooperation with the state fuel giant PKN Orlen is not only a huge sporting success of the Pole, but also provides tangible benefits for the company. Experts calculated how much the company has already gained in cooperation with the Polish F1 driver.

The company boasted financial results for the so-called advertising equivalent, i.e. an estimate of how much they would have to spend on advertisements in the press, radio, television and portals. The calculations reached by the Rzeczpospolita (major polish daily) show that information on cooperation between Robert Kubica and the oil company reached over 102 million people (data for the period from 28 to 31 January).

Only in three days of the partnership between Williams and Orlen in the media was mentioned as many as 1316 times! Orlen estimated that for an advertising equivalent of such a range they would have to spend PLN 8.5 million only on these days.

Rzeczpospolita stresses that the amount has to be multiplied several times, because it’s not only sports editors who are writing on the return of Kubica to F1. “Only in connection with the communication about partnership between Williams Racing and Orlen and thanks to a press conference with the participation of Robert Kubica, over 3 thousand posts appeared in the Polish media. Those generated an equivalent of approximately PLN 17.8 million and reach around 200 million users (data from the Institute of Media Monitoring) - calculates Adam Burak, executive director for corporate communications at PKN Orlen...

I hope such news can motivate more companies to get on board..?

Well if the partnership will work I dont see why Orlen couldnt become a title sponsor in the future. They certainly have the money.

Very clean and simple. I thought that Rich Energy Logo looked familiar. It finally dawned on me Whyte Bikes has an identical antler shape.

Yes. Orlen is here to make money in the end as any other sponsor in F1 and Kubica is the link.

So if Kubica goes do Orlen stay with Williams or do they go too?

My educated guess would be if Kubica gets booted from Williams Orlen will pull the pin on the Williams team.

Well there you go. Those are my two cents as well.

Nice livery on the Haas.

Sad to see the car sporting that thumb nose. I wish they'd tidy up the regulations for that.

Williams is not waiting for planned Formula 1 regulation changes in 2021 to try and make clear progress toward the front of the grid, insists deputy team principal Claire Williams.

Although that could see a significant shake-up of the sport’s structure and competitive order, Williams — who saw her team finish bottom of the constructors’ championship last year — says the finances and facilities are already in place to fight for best of the rest behind Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull.

We’re still a team competing with a very healthy budget, we’re still a team competing with phenomenal resources at Williams and we have a great team of people here,” Williams told RACER. “I don’t see why we aren’t able to fight back in that midfield and to fight for P4.

But I don’t believe that we have to wait and that’s certainly not the mindset that we have here, that we’re just treading water until 2021. That’s a really important message that certainly we’ve relayed internally but to the outside world — that we’re here competing, we’re not just making up the numbers until the landscape changes to better suit us.”

Storey from Rich Energy: “I felt sorry for Williams in the end,” said Storey.

“I felt that as a business, they were living off past glories and didn’t run a very good business.”

Many observers expressed doubt that Rich Energy is even a legitimate company, their products being offered for sale only on their website, but Storey is adamant those are only conspiracy theories.

“Anyone who says that Rich Energy does not exist is like saying that a person never walked on the moon or that Elvis is still alive,” insisted Storey.
