Farah’s sponsorship will involve supplying team members with a range of clothing to be worn while travelling to and from race and test events. The relationship with Sahara Force India marks the continuation of Farah’s plans to capitalise on the global appeal of the sport.

Clifford French will deliver an “insight driven” content series, consumer influencer marketing partnerships, earned media outreach with premium men’s media and event management around the 2017 British Grand Prix.

Mia Zackrisson, global head of marketing for Farah Menswear, said: “Clifford French impressed us with its insight driven strategy. This is a stylish campaign aimed at a younger sports fan that wants to find out more about a sport which is often over complicated with engineering acronyms. Clifford French’s rich story-telling experience will be instrumental as we educate a new wave of F1 fans.”

Dan French, co-founder of Clifford French, added: “Farah menswear is one of the most exciting brands on the high street and now as a sponsor of one of the youngest and most exciting teams in Formula One, we’re delighted to have been selected to help Farah activate their sponsorship.”
