NGK plugs its presence in F1 Championship

NGK plugs its presence in F1 Championship

NGK Spark Plugs UK Ltd will again be at the centre of the race for the 2014 Formula 1 World Championship.

The company is supplying its racing spark plugs to several teams who will fight for the championship over the course of the season which starts in Melbourne Australia on Sunday the 16th of March...

NGK has been involved in Formula 1 since 1964 and its racing spark plugs are used by teams that include McLaren, Ferrari and Mercedes.
The McLaren and Mercedes teams will feature British former world champion drivers Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton respectively while Ferrari has another two previous world champions - Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen.
All the teams will be looking to take the titles from current world champion Sebastian Vettel and his Red Bull team in what will hopefully be a gripping season as they compete for the first time in the new 1.6 V6 turbo powered cars.

The Ferrari F14T is one of several F1 cars using NGK spark plugs this season

Tim Ward, Deputy General Manager for Sales & Marketing of  NGK UK, said, “We are delighted to once again be involved with F1 which is such a popular sport with many of our customers.“They like us are looking forward to what should be a fantastic new season as the teams challenge for the drivers’ and constructors’ championships. They will be able to follow the championship race-by-race via the NGK website so they can keep up to speed with every dramatic twist and turn.”
