2008 F1 team champion Ferrari have signed a new sponsorship with Indian carmaker Tata, extending their existing contract. Ferrari parent company FIAT already has a joint venture with Tata to produce cars in the Indian state of Maharashtra.

REUTERS - Ferrari have bucked the global economic crisis squeezing Formula One by agreeing a sponsorship deal with Indian carmaker Tata.

"For the first time an Indian brand will appear on the Ferrari," president Luca di Montezemolo told Italian media. "It's historic."

A Ferrari spokesman confirmed a deal had been reached and said the details and duration would be announced shortly.
