Hamilton To Blame For Mumm’s Exit From F1? by Kunal Shah

*After a handful of readers not being able to decipher the humour in this post, here’s my declaration to state the obvious. Enjoy reading and hopefully you’ll laugh along too.*

Mumm decided to not up their sponsorship money (from €5 million to whatever Bernie wanted!) to Formula 1 thanks to Lewis Hamilton. After all, the sport's world champion ganged up with a former three times world champion to promote vodka - a category rival to champagne!

MOTORMOUTH HAMILTON
Hamilton-Lauda's vodka video did what none of Mumm's champagne videos have managed so far yet - go viral. Sources indicate that the trigger for this decision was Hamilton's champagne spraying moment in China. The nail in the coffin was when sponsorship tracking reports indicated that Johnnie Walker gained more mileage in 2015 from McLaren-Honda's failures and Alonso's humour.

(PS: I wonder what the brand managers at the Hamilton vodka brand were doing when our Hamilton had his vodka moment. Probably attending lessons in guerilla marketing, I guess?)

Mumm's association with Formula 1 over the years was synonymous to the sport's podium celebrations. But apart from Lewis Hamilton (and a few of his fans) and Mercedes, who is celebrating in Formula 1 anyway?

PARTY'S OVER, LEWIS!

It isn't a surprise that Mumm and Formula 1 have parted ways - even more so because their reason to separate was money, a commodity that binds together only a handful of people in the world of Formula 1.

On the other hand, Moet et Chandon realised that the fastest way to be seen as a celebratory drink on the Formula 1 podium wasn't by partnering with McLaren-Honda. So they decided to pay their way to the podium by splurging a few millions more than Mumm.

ASTON MARTINI RACING, ERR!
I do believe that Mumm have acted smartly by partnering with Formula E at this early a stage in the revolutionary series' lifespan. They should've cracked this deal at a fraction of the cost of their deal with Formula 1 and have dropped a not so subtle hint to brands associated with Formula 1 that Formula E could be an option of the future in the world of motorsport. All in all, one can't blame Mumm for deflecting to greener pastures!

Which then makes me wonder - Has Formula 1 Given Formula E A Chance?

  1. This is a very good post. It's an ideal opportunity to kill the music, turn up the lights, introduce the bill, "get together your coats and move to the ways out" and if fundamental and it clearly is vital call the cops. What's more, better believe it,. Thanks you.

  39. Время, когда за талонами на автовокзале была необходимость простаивать часы в очереди в окошке автобусной станции, давно прошли. Приобретать билеты теперь можно с помощью смартфона расписание автобусов Армавир Тамань, не покидая собственного жилья или офиса. В случае если вы едете в другой город, возможно с ходу забронировать билет на обратный путь, это позволяет вам немного сэкономить.

  41. Позвонить по виртуальному номеру возможно в любой город, а цена звонков останется низкой. В наибольшей степени приемлемый пример установить телефон – это купить номер 495. Проводные номера вообще не употребляются, а мобильное соединение часто слишком недешево. Виртуальный номер слишком давно стандартная банальность, которая имеет ряд плюсов.

В основном не секрет, что в сети найдется множественное число сайтов где есть способы зачисления денежных средств без верификации. Главный список неидентифицируемых платежных систем можно определить в магазине гидра сайт zerkalo onion 2022 com. Нужно не забывать, что не верифицированный вариант транзакций платежей не дает никакой защиты операции.
