Sahara Force India Formula One Team drivers, Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez, will arrive in Monaco with new-look Alpinestars race suits as the team extends its long-standing partnership with the Italian clothing supplier.
Sporting the team's new black identity, the suits are made from advanced, ultra-lightweight fabrics and represent the perfect union of technology and performance. These hi-tech products guarantee both the highest safety standards and crucially, breathability and comfort for the drivers; a key performance factor in the high stress environment of Formula 1™.
The new suits also reinforce the mutual commitment to performance between Sahara Force India and Alpinestars, a partnership that has seen the Italian clothing company supply the team with all of its technical race apparel and footwear, including suits, boots, gloves and under layers, since 2008.
