Mclaren set to get what i would imagine is a much needed cash infusion via a new sponsorship deal with Coca-Cola for the remainder of the year.

the article suggests that there are options to extend if the deal proves beneficial.

https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/c...laren/3197157/

a bit surprising as i thought Coca Cola had sold its energy drink interests over to Monster a few years ago.

also interesting (well maybe more interesting to Canadians as legalization of marijuana just came into effect yesterday) is that Coca Cola are apparently making big investments in cannabis infused beverages...which i imagine will be the next big thing in drinks that you really shouldn't drink.

which i suppose makes F1 a perfect space to advertise in!

Coca-Cola bought a stake in Monster in 2014, in order to expand Coke's energy drinks market. In exchange, Monster transferred ownership of its Natural Soda range to Coke.

That's cool! Coke rarely-to-never puts their own name on cars, usually only on drivers or they use sub-brands, so that's interesting.

McLaren aren't doing IndyCar next year, not full time, what ever that means.

BTW, I did this Coca-Cola skin for an rFactor mod.

lol, CART Factor. That's a blast from the past. I did all the original skins for that (bar the Penskes).

Nice to see Coca Cola on a car but that's a really small commitment down there.

Blimey! It was an excellent mod. I still play it every so often. It will be interesting to see what McLaren's livery is going to look like.

Not sure if there’s much, or any, actual cash. Right now it’s a small deal for a handful of races. Maybe trying to tempt them for 2019.

The team that did that mod (me included) went on to work on Reiza Studios products. Some of the team (not me - I took a different route) now work for rF Pro and supply the simulation software to the entire F1 grid. And now we're back on the topic of F1.
