A new section is launched today on the official Chelsea website, highlighting the partnership between Chelsea Football Club and the Sauber F1 team.

Sign up to the newsletter on the new Chelsea/Sauber section and be in with a chance of winning a signed shirt.

The two internationally successful organisations announced a groundbreaking link-up in April 2012 with Chelsea branding adorning Sauber cars during the Grand Prix season, while the Sauber logo can be seen in and around Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea Chief Executive Ron Gourlay flew to Barcelona to present then Sauber drivers Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi with personalised Chelsea shirts ahead of the 2012 Spanish Grand Prix, where the Blues' badge was on a Sauber vehicle for the first time.

The two drivers were then pictured with the FA Cup following our triumph over Liverpool at Wembley, and Kobayashi also travelled to Munich to watch us win the Champions League.

Last July, three lucky Chelsea Twitter competition winners were given the opportunity to visit the Sauber garage ahead of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, before taking a stroll through the pit lane and watching the likes of Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso speaking to the media.

Sauber winners

In February this year, ahead of the new F1 season, Sauber's two new drivers - Esteban Gutierrez and Nico Hulkenberg - took part in a keepie-uppie challenge at the launch of their new car, with a Chelsea shirt signed by the duo on offer for a supporter who guessed the winner of the challenge correctly.

The launch of the car itself - the Ferrari C-32 - was then available to watch via our Twitter feed on the morning of our away game at Newcastle United.

The following month saw Chelsea and Sauber combine in Kuala Lumpur to help educate children in the Malaysian capital through sport at a Chelsea FC Soccer School.

The event, which was hosted by Gutierrez, saw 24 youngsters put through their paces by Chelsea coaching staff, before the driver gave an inspirational talk about the skills required to become a success in the world of motor racing.

Most recently, with this year's British Grand Prix taking place at the end of this month, Chelsea and Sauber launched a competition to win a host of prizes, including VIP passes to the event, grandstand tickets, a private tour of the Sauber garage and a personalised 2013/14 Chelsea shirt.

The new Sauber page on this website will help supporters to keep up-to-date with all joint Chelsea and Sauber activity.

In addition to being able to sign up to the Chelsea/Sauber newsletter with the chance of winning a signed shirt, visitors can purchase the latest Chelsea/Sauber merchandise range.

The site also provides supporters with the latest Sauber F1 team news ahead of all the major events, as well the F1 Championship calendar.

The new Sauber page includes the 'Sauber F1 Team Pulse' , which is a hub containing all of the Formula 1 team's social media activity across Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, allowing fans to get closer to behind-the-scenes content, all in one place.

This new section of the website can be accessed by clicking on Chelsea/Sauber F1, and supporters can also follow Sauber on Twitter.
