Hugo Chavez Sponsors Formula One Team
Williams has followed up its signing of driver Pastor Maldonado with a long-term sponsorship deal with Venezuela’s state-owned oil company PDVSA.
Venezuelan driver Maldonado took the GP2 title last term and will drive alongside veteran Brazilian Rubens Barrichello in 2011. And the cars will carry the livery of the world’s fifth largest oil exporter.
A Marxist joining a sporting league owned by a Fascist(’s son)? What could go wrong? ;D
