Acronis Racing Weekend

Farewell Malaysia, Welcome Pierre

2017 Malaysia Formula 1 Grand Prix

Ever since its inaugural grand prix in 1999, the Malaysian Grand Prix has been a favorite for teams and drivers alike. Located close to Kuala Lumpur International Airport, the challenging Sepang circuit layout with two long straights and numerous sweeping corners, designed by Hermann Tilke, has provided many exciting races over the years. Alas, the 2017 race would be the last at the venue for the foreseeable future but also a memorable one both for Toro Rosso's Carlos Sainz and a brand new addition to the team in exciting young French starlet Pierre Gasly.

Celebrating 3 years of Acronis International HQ in Singapore

Acronis – Scuderia Toro Rosso partnership powers on! Three years ago Scuderia Toro Rosso supported the opening of Acronis International Headquarters in Singapore as guests. This week, the drivers and the team’s IT key members joined the celebration as partners, celebrating Acronis’ Singaporean origin and demonstrating the benefits of using Acronis’ technology in motor racing.

It’s Racing Time!

The start of the 2017 Grand Prix season is a big occasion for Acronis. We are proud of our fruitful relationship with Scuderia Toro Rosso and we’re excited about the new season. Even though we operate in different industries, we share common values of being #1, Fast, and Innovative.

Video interview with Carlos Sainz at the Brazilian Grand Prix in Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 2016.

Masha Krylova: We have Carlos Sainz here with us, a Formula 1 driver for Scuderia Toro Rosso. Carlos, thank you for your time. It’s your second time in Brazil, what are your thoughts about this track?

Carlos Sainz: Yes, my second race in Brazil. Last year we had a lot of reliability issues, but this year, hopefully, we got rid of them. It’s not a track that favors our car, but anyway, we are here to enjoy, to have fun, and have a good race tomorrow, knowing there is a chance of rain also.
