From the Paper:

"Corporate sponsorship of events, especially sports, has become a commonplace marketing communications tool. Around the world, marketers are using a wide range of sporting events - some of which may not even fit the classical definition for sports - are receiving billions of dollars in sponsorship money. The most sponsorship money, of course, goes to the most popular sports and today, the Formula One racing series is one of the most televised sporting championships in the world, representing a growing multi-billion dollar global industry. Some of the marketing techniques that have gone hand-in-hand with such sponsorship has resulted in mixed reviews from consumer advocates and governmental policymakers, but just about everyone agrees that there is a lot of money to be made and everyone, if would seem, wants some of it."
