Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but Force India said Auden Mckenzie branding will feature on the cars of Nico Hülkenberg and Sergio Perez from this weekend’s Bahrain Grand Prix.

Vijay Mallya, team principal and managing director of Force India, said: “We look forward to laying the foundations for a strong, mutually beneficial relationship – one that further reaffirms our standing as a global brand in the world of sport.
