“We are excited to partner with burn to build a new and innovative model for sponsorships that will combine experiences, content creation and social media.”

Burn said in a statement that it plans to incorporate “art and music in a way that will break the conventions of traditional F1 sponsorship”.

“We’re honoured to announce that we have joined the Lotus F1 team and are set to enter the world of Formula 1 racing.

The Lotus team is the number one emerging challenger in the sport and has demonstrated exceptional creativity in their approach to Formula 1. We indeed to foster that creativity by incorporating art and music in a way that will break the conventions of traditional F1 sponsorship.”

    Magnum is already sponsoring Lotus through Unilever.
    So KImi played a big part with that Coke & Magnum then.
    All the best for 2013 season!

        Lotus now have some of the biggest corporations as sponsors.

        Unilever is absolutely huge and now Coca-Cola.

        As long as both drivers will be on podium all the time, Lotus will have an unlimited budget.
