Starting this 2013 season, there'll be a new sticker added to Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa's F138 race car. That's because UPS just signed a multi-year contract to be Scuderia Ferrari's new official logistics and shipping sponsor.
As part of the deal, UPS will become fully integrated into Ferrari's daily operations on and off the Formula 1 grid by providing critical delivery and transportation services. In other words, they'll have the full responsibility of shipping all of the team's equipment, tools, and Formula 1 race cars to all 19 races in the 2013 Formula 1 World Championship season.

If your day job involves driving the fastest Ferraris in the most prestigious racing series the world has ever seen, you'd expect the perks to be among some of the best in the world. So, in a lead-up to the 2012 Formula 1 Season, Chrysler gave drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa a special pair of Jeep Grand Cherokees. While that may not sound like a very exciting prospect, consider that these are SRT8 models, equipped with a 6.4 liter 468 horsepower HEMI V8 and decked out in exclusive Ferrari Rosso Corsa paint and bespoke trim.
