    Mercedes took the cronstructors title yesterday at the Russian Grand Prix with lots of prominent BlackBerry advertising to be seen everywhere. I was surprised there isn't another thread on here mentioning the fact and how well BlackBerry did to get advertising like that to a TV audience of 300 to 400 million people. Well done Mercedes and Blackberry.

    The logo / brand name is now clearly visible. On older suits you could barely read it. Glad they fixed it...

    Hi guys, I'm not here often, but it crossed my mind why the hell BlackBerry is not on their own bandwagon making much of their sponsorship. As a brit in USA I'm aware that F1 is not a big sport here, but outside the USA it's massive. Viewing figures worldwide are unbelievable and Mercedes and the BlackBerry partnership have had magnificent exposure. Why are they sitting on their hands with this? It baffles me.

    I watch every practice, qualifying, and race. BlackBerry is visible everywhere throughout : all over the cars, on the pit crews, on team management's headphones. Mercedes AMG is very active on BBM Channels.

    US Grand Prix over in Austin, TX in 2 weeks - it's a huge spectacle for the whole city, whole weekend. Hopefully BlackBerry does something with it here in the USA.

    At the very, very least.

    Issue a media press release congratulating them on their hard work and how BlackBerry is proud to sponsor and be in partnership with a team of winners on the world stage.

    The other guys got it right. Advertisement and public announcements on Blackberry's main page is the very least. When there's a win, you want to make sure everyone knows you were part of it. Blackberry's PR work is absolute sh1t.

    BlackBerry picked a winner with this marketing (for once).

    It's too bad no one in the US watches F1.

    IMO BlackBerry should hook up with an NFL or baseball team in NY like it does with the Leafs in Toronto. Corporate eyes needs to see the name.

    NASCAR team co-owner Gene Haas is working on plans to launch a new American Formula 1 team, AUTOSPORT has learned.

    High level sources have confirmed that Haas, who part owns the Stewart-Haas team, is working with former Red Bull and Jaguar technical director Gunther Steiner on the F1 project

    They continue to waste their cash. No impact at all here. Their largest cash cow and Chen ignores it.

    Chen is anti - American! BlackBerry us anti-American.


    I'm getting a t-shirt made saying this. I'm posting it where ever I can.

    Chen has no guts. Picking the low hanging fruit. Being a comic and taking credit for what other started.

    What phone was his idea? None. All were in the works before he arrived.

    F1 sponsorship was also not his, already in place when he took over...Mercedes has won constructors championship and it's looking like a Mercedes driver taking the world championship... and from what little I know I think it is a 3 year deal.
