Best Water Technology (BWT) will have a subtle presence on the new Aston Martin F1 car after signing new deal to remain with the team.
After speculations linking BWT with teams like Haas, Alfa Romeo Racing and Williams, they are to remain with their former partners Aston Martin in their new form. They have signed a new deal to remain together, but they are no longer title partners.
Aston Martin confirmed of ‘subtle presence’ of BWT’s famous pink colour on the 2021 F1 car, which will have an all-new base colour, presumably green. The partnership goal remains the same, as they push towards sustainability.
BWT aims for reduction of plastics through the adoption of reusable vessels and recyclable filters to reduce waste and pollution in the world. “Our friends at BWT have been loyal supporters of this team and I am delighted they have chosen to be a partner of Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team,” said Otmar Szafnauer.
“BWT will support our efforts to become more sustainable in all areas of the business, but especially in our trackside operations – a goal that marries up with Formula One’s own sustainability objectives. This is a strong and historic partnership entering an important new era, and we are all excited to see what we can achieve together.”
“I am proud to continue supporting this wonderful team of people and to start a new chapter with Aston Martin’s return to Formula One. Having seen the team enjoy such a strong 2020 season, we believe the years ahead are full of great promise and we want to continue supporting this team’s journey towards the front of the grid,” said Andreas Weibenbacher.
“As well as success on the track, we will work with Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team to achieve its objectives away from the track by becoming more sustainable. It means continuing the work from last year to cut down the use of disposable bottles at the track, minimise plastic waste and facilitate the local treatment and consumption of water.
“Additionally, we are looking forward to starting cooperation with more people in the F1 community who are also convinced of our mission to fight for a plastic-free planet and who are ready to spread this mission to people around the globe.”
The deal with BWT comes after Aston Martin announced partnership with host of other companies like SentinelOne, Girard-Perregaux, Replay and EPOS, ever since the announcement of Cognizant as its new title sponsor for the 2021 F1 season.
