MSC Cruises Celebrates Sponsorship With Formula 1

At the Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix on July 28 to July 30, 2023, MSC Cruises and Formula 1 celebrated the cruise line as the title sponsor at the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit!  

Formula 1 fans and MSC Cruises travelers got to see the collaboration between the two brands play out as MSC Cruises branding was featured at the start/finish line and at other places on the track.  

The race winner and Constructor trophies were co-designed by MSC Cruises for the race weekend. Additionally, MSC Cruises CEO, Gianni Onorato, played a significant part in the podium ceremony at the end of the race.

“It was an honor for me to participate in this special moment on behalf of MSC Cruises and present the winners with the trophy,” said Onorato. 

Other title sponsorships with Formula 1 will be selected at future races during the 2024 World Championship season. MSC Cruises will be the Official Cruise Partner of Formula 1 until the end of the 2026 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.
