    Calibre11 TAG Heuer TAG Heuer back on the McLaren!

    Hello TAG Heuer F1 Fans,

    Some of you already know, but the TAG Heuer logo is finally back on the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes car and driver's uniform.

    This is the first time the logo has been on the car, since the Senna days! McLaren and TAG Heuer have a very long partnership. The F1 watch came out because of the Marlboro Honda McLaren Team in the 80's. The MP4-28 is not too much different on the outside from the previous MP4-27, but is so on the inside!

    I'm looking forward to this 2013 Formula One Season! As always go McLaren!

    Here is some pictures of the car, borrowed from the internet.

    Doesn't TAG still own part of the this team?
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Re: TAG Heuer back on the McLaren!

    TAG owns about a fifth of McLaren, part of which is the F1 team.
    I can't work out if Ron Dennis still owns TAG (TAGHeuer) shares or not since the sale to LVMH.

    Correct- TAG (not TAG Heuer) still own part of McLaren, but LVMH own 100% of TAG Heuer- Ron Dennis sold into the IPO in the late '90s (before LVMH bought the company).

    Bout time, I always wondered why they were no where to be found on the car or the uniform.
    It puts the watch on its wrist or it gets the hose.
