After a positive start to the 2012 Formula 1™ season, with strong performances in the opening two races, the Marussia F1 Team is pleased to announce a new Official Partnership with UK2.NET.

UK2.NET is one of the biggest and fastest growing web hosting companies in the UK. Accredited by ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), the company provides domain names, web hosting, dedicated servers, VPS cloud hosting and ecommerce solutions to its customers. Some of the recent advancements to its products and services include a new UK based data centre, 24/7 live online support and new product packages to cater for a wide range of customers – those new to the web and even the savviest of developers.

The Marussia F1 Team is now in its third year of competition but the strength of its overall package for 2012, demonstrated in Australia and Malaysia over the past two Grand Prix weekends, reflects the team’s desire to take a significant step towards its longer-term ambitions. Aligning itself with businesses at this stage in their development is precisely how UK2.NET has been able to develop such an expansive customer base and rate of growth.

Andy Webb, CEO, Marussia F1 Team:

“We are very pleased with the solid start we have made to the 2012 season, both in performance and commercial terms. Our Partner portfolio continues to expand at an encouraging rate and we are delighted to help UK2.NET take advantage of the opportunity to benefit from an association with a team and sport that is in a continuous state of rapid growth and development. This is exactly the kind of environment in which UK2.NET has flourished and we look forward to working together as we aim to keep driving the team forward in every area.”

Martin Baker, Managing Director, UK2.Net:

“We’re very excited to partner with the Marussia F1 Team for the 2012 Formula 1™ Season. Both of our businesses are constantly striving for technological advancements and innovation, on the race track and in the board room, and we are looking forward to working together to maximise the potential of both companies. The Marussia F1 Team is similar to the start-ups we support – they are a young team with ambitious plans for the future. Our customers have similar aspirations and we support them by providing world-class hosting solutions to complement their businesses.”
