    It whas a matter of time that it would happen.

    Today Renault F1 sponsor ING anounced that they will stop with there sponsor activities in F1 racing.
    It will however remain till the end of this season.
    ING is in rough wetter due to the finicial crisis.
    The bank anounced that they will cut back on 40% of sponsoring and hope`s to save milions of dollars / euro`s.
    F1 is not the only sport ING will stop sponsoring.
    The bank stated also that worldwide 7000 jobs will disapear

    ING enterd the F1, 2 years ago with Renault.

    I think by hook or by crook that will always run. Its far too popular to drop surely.
