Who thinks that Santander/Abbey has too much exposure on F1.

Discussion in 'Formula 1' started by John Bergqvist, Jan 6, 2009.

  4. Nope, They're getting what they want from their money - exposure. More exposure = more cash. More cash means less stupid money saving ideas from Mosley.
     
  5. they should probably consider hooking up with lewis hamilton or something....
     
  6. guess you was click me :laugh2:
     
  7. yeh, see them at every corner at least 10 times... They're all that's keeping F1 going in this goddamned recession!

    Isnt it promotion for the city of Santander in Spain? Although if a city must advertise them so much to be attractive i wont pay them a visit for sure :)

    Funny that the local football club is called RACING Santander, maybe they confused some parts lol
     
  10. It's the largest bank in Europe, both personal and investment banking I think, and they own Abbey :)

    Is the "Banco de Santander", wich has the name of the city where it was founded, on the north, Cantabric coast (Atlantic Ocean) of Spain, and is one of the biggest banks in Europe.

    Abbey is a British bank Santander bought few years ago.

    They went to McLaren with Fernando Alonso and they will be Ferrari sponsor for 2010...
     
  12. So, do you think Fernando will be moved too with the bank to Ferrari?
