Not sure whether or not Ferrari's entire IT is handled by TCS because this is a well kept secret even within the TCS organisation However, TCS & Ferrari have moved up in the relationship chain and TCS is now a strategic partner and has been conferred the highest vendor award by Ferrari. Those of you who have been out from Heathrow on the motorway or to Manchester from down south would have seen TCS Ferrari adverts on the road since the past 5 years. So guys, Tata as a whole has been knitting a very close tie with Fiat. Bravo! cheers:

No thank you. Eleven months of owning a used Jag has been so much more pleasurable and trouble-free than 8 months of owning a brand new Alfa . I've been to Jaguar just twice, but by this period I had already been a weekly visitor to Fiat.

This shows that Tata really has good funds to support the Ferrari team. Recently, I have also read Honda has also pulled out of the formula one race. The entire sports is presently pressurized by the impacts of economic recession.

Nothing wrong with that mate. TATA bent over its back to satisfy the Unions. So now the British Govt should help TATA in the rescue.

+1 to that. I am tempted to go out and buy a Vista and put Ferrari stickers on it!

I think is a good deal for the Tata's as it gives them good visibility without too much of a cost burden (today's ET says its one of the most cost effective ways of doing so). Guess they would have done their math thoroughly before getting into this deal.

Maruti is too busy in making crap looking backside cars so they don't have time for such deals

Which portion of our country does Force India represent apart from VM himself? You'd think he'd have given an Indian driver a chance to begin with if he was so patriotic. Considering the team is at the bottom of the rung anyway.

Me, I'm so happy to hear about the TATA logo on the Scarlet beautiescheers:

I have heard that the global recession has placed a big question mark on Formula One race. Honda has already pulled out of the market and the fear that the others may also pull out has ruined the enthusiasm of the F1 drivers.

Default Re: Tata's logo on an F1 Ferrari ( FIAT )

Guys,
sorry to bump up an old topic, but I can't seem to find the TATA/TCS logo on the F2012. Does this mean that they've parted ways?
Does anyone have any insider info?
It's very peculiar considering there has been no news about this.
