Mitchell announce Sahara sponsorship, deny Hulkenberg rumours

Mitchell today announced a title sponsorship deal with Indian conglomerate Sahara India Pariwar.

The team will run the groups logo’s on its cars from the 2016 season onwards.

Rumours are sweeping the paddock that the team will not retain long-time driver Nico Hulkenberg for the 2016 season and that due to today’s deal he could be replaced by Indian driver Karun Chandhok as soon as the British Grand Prix.

Team boss Joe Mitchell was reached out for comment on the rumours but said he could not hear the questions from his brand new ride-on Mugen powered lawnmower.
