The Austrian water technology specialist, Best Water Technology, will remain in the team for the 2021 season.
After rumours of BWT sponsoring Williams and Haas, the company has confirmed it will stay with Aston Martin for this season, the team said the car will be very different with new base colour with subtle BWT brand accents and logos.
Aston Martin F1 Team CEO & Team Principal, Otmar Szafnauer said:
“Our friends at BWT have been loyal supporters of this team and I am delighted they have chosen to be a partner.
"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.”
Andreas Weißenbacher, CEO of BWT, commented:
“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.
"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.”
BWT entered Formula 1 in 2017 with Force India with the famous pink livery and became the title sponsor for the 2019 and 2020 season with Racing Point.
