Renault F1 Team announces new Russian partner

The Renault F1 Team is pleased to announce another successful step in its commercial strategy in Eastern Europe with the arrival of Vyborg Shipyard JSC as a team partner for the final five rounds of the 2010 season.

This marks the team’s second partnership with a Russian company in 2010, following the agreement with Lada, whose logos have featured on the team’s cars throughout the season. Both companies have been attracted to the team by Vitaly Petrov’s promising debut season as Russia’s first ever F1 driver. Vitaly has registered four points-scoring finishes so far in 2010, including a best finish of fifth at the Hungarian Grand Prix – the strongest result for a rookie driver this year

Vyborg Shipyard JSC is one of the largest shipbuilding companies in the North-Western region of Russia, and its logo will feature on the chassis of both R30 race cars for the remainder of the 2010 season. Vitaly Petrov, a native of Vyborg, will also carry the Vyborg Shipyard logo on his overalls.

Well I have a feeling that this would increase Petrov's chances of staying.
