As an integral part of Monster’s ongoing global push, Monster Energy will join MERCEDES GP PETRONAS as a Team Partner for the 2010 Formula One season starting from the first Grand Prix in Bahrain this weekend.
The glowing Monster Energy logo will feature prominently on the helmets of the team’s drivers, Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher, and on their silver racesuits, as the new Silver Arrows race cars compete around the globe during the 19-race Formula One season.
After winning 91 races and seven World Championships, Michael announced his retirement in 2006, before deciding to make his return to the sport with the new Mercedes-Benz works team. Nico, the son of 1982 Formula One World Champion Keke Rosberg, has 70 Grand Prix starts to his name and is considered to be one of brightest young stars of the sport and tipped by many to be a future World Champion.
