McLaren lands another Ferrari sponsor
McLaren has announced a deal with Olympus, which was previously a sponsor of the rival Ferrari team. It is the second Ferrari sponsor to jump to McLaren in the last couple of years, the other being the team's title sponsor Vodafone.
The announcement is interesting given all the negative publicity that has been flying around about McLaren.
Olympus has a long history in F1,beginning in 1978 with support for Divina Galica's Hesketh and then a deal with Team Lotus. The company switched to Wolf Racing in 1979 and then popped up again with Team Lotus again in 1985.
The company signed a three-year deal with Ferrari
