VIDEO: What a ride it’s been – Thank You, Marussia!
The partnership between QNET and the Marussia F1™ Team was a momentous evolution of QNET’s support of worldwide sport, particularly motorsport. The shifting in gear from various racing series’ to Formula 1™, with the most dynamic and vibrant team on the track – the Marussia F1™ Team – ensured QNET’s continued legacy of championing the world of motorsport.
After four impeccable years as official direct selling partner, we experienced varying depths of emotion as we kept up with Marussia’s speed, precision and teamwork. With the Marussia F1™ Team, we dreamed, we performed and we achieved, as we were instantly recognised and respected as a member of an influential and powerful organisation. What a ride it’s been!
From its 2010 debut as the underdog, the Team had a tough time to move up the grid compared to the other established drivers, however together we matured and grew throughout the seasons.
For QNET, which has been involved with motorsport through its sponsorship of teams in the Formula BMW, Formula V6 and the GP2 Asia series from 2004 to 2009, the move to the Formula 1™ category was a natural progression, ensuring exposure for the brand on a global stage in one of the most prestigious sporting arenas.
We wish the best of luck to all the dedicated people who made Marussia happen. And particularly, our hearts remain with Marussia driver #17 Jules Bianchi who sadly sustained a severe head injury in a tragic accident during the Japanese Grand Prix and remains in critical condition. We send Jules our thoughts and prayers.
Thank you, Marussia.
