The Lotus Renault GP team has confirmed that it has signed deals with four new partners ahead of this weekend's Italian Grand Prix at Monza.

Telecommunications giant Embratel - a personal sponsor of new race driver Bruno Senna - and Brazilian oil and gas company OGX are amongst the new partners, along with Gillette and pharmaceutical company Auden McKenzie.

All four new partners will now feature on the R31s of Senna and Vitaly Petrov from this weekend's race, with the team welcoming the new backers onboard.

"We are delighted to welcome no fewer than four new partners to our commercial portfolio, and to what is proving to be a very exciting season of Formula 1," team boss Eric Boullier said. "Lotus Renault GP share a common ethos with all the brands, in that we want to achieve at the very highest level through world-class professional practices.

"We are looking forward to prosperous relationships with all four partners in the coming months."
