Can they afford to keep on sponsoring Ferrari and paying for Alonso's seat ? The Spanish banking system is on it's knees, soon to be bankrupt and is heading for a bailout, are we all going to end up paying for his seat there and a lap dog number two driver ?

For your information sixtenths you *****, Santander were furious at the way Alonso was treated at McIdiots under ***** Dennis!!! They were on the verge of cancelling their sponsorship deal with McmoRons at the end of 2007, but because they had taken over Abbey National that year, and due to Hamiltons popularity in the UK, they decided to stay with them so they could use Hamilton for the extra publicity in the UK. Now their business in the UK has been a total success, they do not need McDickheads OR Hamilton to further their interests in the UK. Hamilton has also been plagued with more than most drivers share of controversy since 2007, and now they feel that it is not in their best interests to be associated with him or the team any longer! Santander can now invest more money into Ferrari and Alonso so your remark about "paying for his (Alonsos) seat is utter garbage!
