Just been reading about Man Utds various official sponsors. Some are pretty ridiculous (e.g. Official Diesel Engine Partner).

I was trying to think of any comparable ones in the F1 world. Anyone got any?

Not sure, but if you look at the McLaren site they have Title Partner, Engine Partner, Technology Partners, Corporate Partners, Associate Partners, the Official Suppliers. I suspect it's listed in order of financial commitment, but then again Lucozade which has a presence on the car is only listed as an official supplier.

I would've suggested McLaren also... they're the only F1 team on a par with the big football teams in terms of corporate savvy.
