Bose to become 'Official Team Partner in Sound'
As preparations for the opening race weekend of the new season get underway in Melbourne, the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team is delighted to announce a new partnership with Bose which sees the company become the team's Official Team Partner in Sound.
Renowned as a provider of quality home cinema, music and loudspeaker systems, Bose was founded in the USA in 1964 and has grown to become a global brand celebrated for its commitment to innovation and 'Better Sound through Research'.

The iconic Bose logo will feature on the racesuits and helmets of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, on the helmets of the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS pit crew, and on the team's trackside clothing.
