Santander confirm Ferrari deal - The bankers reveal a new partnership with the Scuderia

Published by Christine

Ferrari seem to be keeping hold of the 'worst kept secret' title today as Santander announced a five year sponsorship deal with the team.

We share common values, such as striving for excellence, a passion for competition, an international approach and, last but by no means least, the colour red. These values will make this a fruitful partnership, noteworthy around the world.

- Luca di Montezemolo

I don't know why the 'colour red' bit makes me laugh, but it does. Have we established this means they're not sponsoring McLaren any more? Does this make the Alonso deal almost certain? What do you make of the new partnership?
