Jan.20 (GMM) A sponsor of the ailing backmarker Caterham has found its way to McLaren.
The grandee British team announced on Tuesday that CNN, the famous American news channel, has signed up to be an on-car McLaren sponsor in 2015 and beyond.
Until the backmarker struck trouble during last year’s F1 season, CNN adorned the Caterham livery.
But in 2015, the CNN logos will be on the front wing endplates of the new Honda-powered MP4-30, which will be launched online next Thursday.
“I think the executives at CNN are as excited as we are about the potential of this relationship,” said McLaren supremo Ron Dennis.
