Following the announcement that Downton had split with Orange telecommunications, speculation has been rife as to who would replace them on the BD03.
And today, in the first pre-season test of the 2015 season, the answer was unveiled. Aviva and EE are the new sponsors adorning the bright orange sidepods.
In a statement Downton confirmed, 'I'm delighted to announce that our partnership with Orange will actually continue, albeit in the form of a sponsorship deal with their owners EE.'
'I'm also happy to confirm we have struck a new deal with Aviva to become a major sidepod sponsor. The car looks absolutely fantastic, I just wish it had been a bit quicker today.'
