This also marks the beginning of a new chapter in the group's endeavor to cultivate a global brand for itself; as F1 is a huge platform, globally. According to Romit Chaterji, vice president, corporate affairs, Tata Services Ltd, the group has a three dimensional approach towards leveraging the opportunity. Says Chaterji, "Within international markets it gives us two options. One, the world over, it starts creating the Tata name. Secondly, the magnitude of the whole F1 platform allows an opportunity which enables us to bring customers, business associates and key clients to the ring and offers excellent networking opportunities."

According to Chaterji, "In India, people feel good about the Tatas. And, Narain being the first Indian to drive at the F1 will definitely snap in a sense of pride and jubilation. Consequently, we will try and capitalize on this as much as possible through events, advertising and other ground activities."
