Heard it on the radio last saturday when Albers was interviewed. Surprised that nobody posted it before...

From the SBS-site:

Thursday januar 27th Christijan Albers will present his dutch sponsors to the press. He will do so during the Minardi F1 team pre-launch party at the Cineac in Amsterdam.

We (SBS) can tell you that Christijan will drive a minardi before the press-conference, that will start at 20.00hr This was confirmed by albers management today. So, also for the fans that do not have admission to the pressconference there will be something to see and experience in Amsterdam!

    "It's an exciting time for me and I can't wait for my first race in Melbourne," Albers said. "It's going to be an amazing experience and I'm looking forward sharing it with all my fans in my very own column at F1Racing.net."

"We are proud to be working with one of the hottest prospects in Formula One and alongside some great companies which have helped him secure this amazing opportunity."
  • Next to Meurmans, JVC, also Playstation is on the car.
  • Is there any website reporting at the moment?
  • Playstation would be real nice.
  • According to the TOMS-board, the sponsors are:




    Lost Boys





    and Media Republlic

  • Also Total, MAN trucks and Arai helmets are on the car. Unfortunate there is no website reporting anything at the moment, but pictures will follow soon I hope.

    Edit: You were faster than me. :D
    Also Trust is on the car.

  • Are they also presenting the new livery?
  • I don't know, I haven't seen any pictures yet.
  • Latest rumours are that Trust will be back on the car....:hehe:
  • I hope the pictures will be online till 7 o'clock tomorrow...
  • I think today they present the "Dutch" livery, but that this livery will change at the real launch in Melbourne,once all the sponsors are confirmed; teamsponsors & 2nd and 3rd driver's sponsors.

    The helmet:

  • Trust will only be on the cap, not on the car.

    Stoddart confirmed that Kiesa will be the second driver but no contract has been signed yet.

    More sponsors: 4net.nl, id-t, Stichting Doe een Wens, Pertijs Juweliers, SBS Autosport and CO2
  • He's driving on bricks!!!!!!

  • Stoddart confirmed that Kiesa will be the second driver but no contract has been signed yet.
    Oh no :( Source? And did he say something about when Kiesa will be confirmed?
  • Source: the pre-launch party. Confirmation: soon, only details....
  • quote:
    Stoddart confirmed that Kiesa will be the second driver but no contract has been signed yet.
    Let me correct that.

    Stoddart confermd that the second driver is known. An experienced EuropeanF1 driver who has driven for Minardi before. So Baumgartner, Kiesa or Verstappen (the last one not really likely)
  • @ Homer, in your list you had Total, is that the petro company?
  • Totally no total ;)
