Hype branding will be located on the cockpit of the VJM09, the inside of the rear wing end plate and on the drivers suits.
The extended partnership allows Hype Energy to build on its strong heritage in motorsport, which dates back to the 1995 season, when the Hype logo first appeared in Formula One. Since then, the brand has matured to become one of the best tasting premium and lifestyle energy drinks on the market.
Fans of the sport can look forward to a busy activation programme from Hype, ranging from social media competitions to consumer events. This also includes the expansion of the #MFPClub at key races on the 2016 calendar.
Vijay Mallya, Team Principal and Managing Director: “Hype Energy is one of those exciting brands that fits perfectly with Formula One. We enjoy working with them and it’s great to see the brand going from strength to strength with the introduction of new products. With their support last year we enjoyed our best ever season, so I’m delighted that we have expanded the partnership for 2016 and look forward to further shared success.”
Bertrand Gachot, former Formula One racing driver, 24 Hours of Le Mans winner and current CEO of Hype Energy Drinks: “We’re extremely pleased and excited to continue our partnership with Sahara Force India. Last year, thanks to the great successes of the team, the Hype brand enjoyed huge growth and strengthened its global position in the functional drinks category. I enjoy working with this team and from a personal perspective it’s a natural choice: I helped lay the foundations for this team in 1990 and then raced for them in 1991. I’m proud that today I can still work with some of the same people as I did as a racing driver. I have immense faith in them. I would also like to thank Vijay for his support and Otmar for his great strategic work.”
The Hype Energy drinks range includes Hype Energy MFP, MFP Sugar Free, UP, Enlite, MOJITO, AfterDark and the 60mL shot. Hype Energy drinks are available in over 45 countries and with trademarks registered in more than 145 countries.
