Thanks to a partnership between the Brawn GP team and Sony Pictures Releasing International, Hollywood’s most famous robot, the Terminator, will make an appearance at the 2009 Spanish Grand Prix to celebrate the release of the forthcoming blockbuster Terminator Salvation.
Directed by McG (Charlie’s Angels) and starring Christian Bale, Sam Worthington and Bryce Dallas Howard, the much-anticipated movie will be released in the UK on 3 June. Christian Bale portrays John Connor, leader of the human resistance against Skynet, in a post-apocalyptic landscape where an army of Terminators roams the earth looking for human survivors to kill or collect.
To celebrate the release of Terminator Salvation, the Brawn-Mercedes cars of Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello will carry the famous Terminator red eyes and imagery around the track during the Spanish Grand Prix weekend.
