First of all, sorry to the mods if there is a Caterham 2012 thread, i cant find it to post this in.
New sponsor joins Caterham, Visa. http://www.caterhamf1.com/news/2012/vis ... am-partner
This is surly on the back of Alex Rossi getting a FP1 seat and im sure it is the second of many North American sponsors to join the team behind GE who joined for a deal reportedly worth €35m last year. Id recon this is a €20m a season deal, and if the reports that Blackberry were to follow GE last year that never materialised due to the Lotus/Team Lotus thing. Id say that Blackberry could now inject a decent ammount of sponsorship now as that issue has gone.
Looks like Caterham will become one of the better funded teams this year, as their budget this year is a estimated €120m to €130m. Whitch is on a par with Force India and Toro Rosso. All they need to do is get to that €180m+ mark and they will be in the Lotus/Mercedes region of budget.
