Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN and PUMA together for race gear performance

Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN is entering an exciting partnership with PUMA, the team’s new official race gear supplier. PUMA will provide the full range of items worn by the team’s drivers, Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu, as they prepare to compete in the first race of the 2022 Formula One season in Bahrain, as well as a dedicated training range for the team.

One of the world’s leading sports brands, PUMA designs, develops and markets state-of-the-art racing gear and apparel. A company with an impressive heritage, for more than 70 years PUMA has relentlessly pushed sport and culture forward by creating fast products for the world’s fastest athletes.

In addition to racewear tailored to Valtteri’s and Zhou’s needs in the cockpit, PUMA will also make sure our crew is operating at the highest level both at the track and while preparing for the race weekend, thanks to training gear designed to help them during preparation sessions at the team’s HQ in Hinwil, Switzerland.

PUMA will also provide Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN with footwear: the team will be wearing the brand’s shoes trackside and as part of their travel gear as they move around the world during the 2022 season.

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN:
“We welcome PUMA to the Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN family with open arms. Like our team, their brand has a long and proud history in sports and has become synonymous with quality and innovation. They are going to help us deliver performance, not just by enabling our drivers and crew to train and compete with the latest gear, tailored to their needs, but also by pushing their research and development efforts to provide ever better equipment. We are excited to work with them this year and to develop the relationship between PUMA and our drivers – Valtteri, who has worked with them for a long time, and Zhou, who will be wearing PUMA gear as he writes history this weekend as the first F1 driver from China.”

James Clark, Head of Sports Marketing Motorsport, PUMA: “We are more than delighted to join forces with Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN as official race gear supplier. Alfa Romeo has got a long legacy in Motorsport being one of the founding fathers of Formula One. The passion for Motorsport is what connects us. In addition, the driver constellation is really exciting. We are really looking forward supporting Zhou Guanyu as the first Chinese Formula One pilot. He will be a milestone to push the sport in his home country further on. Moreover, it is a pleasure to continue working together with Valtteri Bottas, who has been part of the PUMA Family since 2017 already. Great potential in the cockpit of the Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN and I can´t wait to see them on their chase for the podium.”
