Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro Announces Santander As New Sponsor

by F1Fan on September 11, 2009

Yesterday at a news conference held in Monza, Ferrari announced a major new sponsorship deal with the Spanish bank “Santander”.

The sponsorship deal will start in 20120 and last for 5 years. Currently Santander logo’s can be seen on the McLaren Mercedes cars a sponsorship deal that happened at the same time Fernando Alonso joined McLaren.

Maranello, 10th September – Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with the Santander Bank, which, as from 2010, will become of the team’s most important sponsors.

“We are very happy to have a new partner like Santander, with whom we are beginning a very important and long term collaboration,” commented President Luca di Montezemolo. “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.”

The agreement, which is for a five year period, will see the Santander logo and branding on the cars, the drivers’ overalls and on the team kit.

This announcement seems to add credence to the rumors that Fernando will join Ferrari at the end of this season, although widely reported that an announcement to that effect would occur at the Monza race weekend no news has been forthcoming so far.
