The team's cars will carry Porto Seguro logos at this week's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix as the insurance company becomes the latest Brazilian brand to partner with AMF1 and show its support for reserve driver, Felipe Drugovich.
Having announced Brazilian financial services company, XP, in Sao Paulo last week, the partnership between AMF1 and Porto Seguro further underlines the shared ambition to capitalise on Brazil's love of motorsport and invest in one of the sport's young talents in Felipe.
Felipe is set to drive for the team during the first free practice session in Abu Dhabi this Friday – his first involvement in an official session during a Formula One Grand Prix weekend.
The Porto Seguro logos will appear on the front wing end plates of the AMR22 in Abu Dhabi. The partnership, finalised in Sao Paulo last week, continues for the 2023 season building on AMF1's push to elevate the profile of Brazilian motorsport.
Roberto Santos, CEO of Porto, said:
"This is an exciting opportunity for Porto Seguro as we partner with Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One™ Team and support the development of Felipe Drugovich. Brazil has a very strong tradition with F1 and auto racing that must be sustained in the future.
"This project – bringing together strong Brazilian companies – is building real momentum. It will expand our potential to operate in this segment and reinforce our commitment to be a safe haven for people and their dreams, transforming the realities of all Brazilians."
Jefferson Slack, AMF1 Managing Director, Commercial & Marketing, said:
"I am delighted to see Porto Seguro show their support for Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One™ Team and Felipe Drugovich. They are Brazil's most successful insurance company and share our determination to capitalise on the popularity of the sport in South America and support one of Brazil's brightest talents in Felipe.
"Alongside our existing partnership with XP, they will champion the cause to establish Brazil's place at the top of the sport in the years ahead."
