Author Topic: Not heard of Aston Martin's new F1 title sponsor Cognizant - well wonder no more  (Read 738 times)

Offline John S

This video provides some answers to the astonishing scale of this largely unknown -  well to me anyway - enterprise.  :swoon:

Now own up if you had no clue like me that Cognizant's annual turnover is more than 5 & a half Papa Stroll's.  :D

Makes me wonder how many other monster size companies are out there beyond a regular Joe's horizon.  :DntKnw:

Oh - stick with the vid, he gets to the point about 2 mins in.

Good find, John. Thanks. I do think it's a shame that an American company didn't go with Haas (says the die-hard Haas fan  ;)  )

It sounds like Tommo got one of those FOM letters like Wizzo did back in the day.

I would think F1 would be a good fit for someone like Coke, or McDonald's. It's probably due to the US viewership being so small.

Given how popular F1 is on Reddit, I think GameStop should use their newfound wealth to sponsor a team.

That is going to be a gigantic mess that will send ripples up Wall Street for some time.

I take it you mean GameStop Lonny not Cognizant?  ;)

No, Game Stop. Brokerages have been manipulating the market for years. E.G. There is a brokerage that controls about 25% of the aluminum supply in the US. They store the actual aluminum in a warehouse and sell only the minimum the government requires them to sell. This keeps the price high, and by increasing the supply at certain times, they can influence the futures market. The Game Stop mess is going to trigger an investigation into all brokerage practices. Senator Warren is chairman of the finances committee and she has been gunning for Wall Street for years. I think this will drag out well into the future.

McDonald's, I think, planned to do F1 with Bourdais, but by the time he finally got there, it was 2008 and a recession was about to start...

Lonny I don't know how we missed it but Coke has been involved with McLaren for a couple of years, and will be continuing.
