There's a definite financial aspect the the Perez story, after they announced he was dropped they delayed their sponsorship announcement.

I'm guessing the Telmex sponsorship deal fell through.

I'm going to guess it will be O2 who are owned by Telefonica, who used to sponsor Renault F1 until Alonso left for McLaren. McLaren seem to be serious about getting Alonso for 2015 so having a big Spanish company as sponsor would make sense.

A lot of people have said that they are looking forward to the McLaren in new colours. Am I the only one who will miss the current livery?

On another note, Vodafone are not pulling out of this sponsorship deal due to McLaren's lack of performance. Neither will they be sponsoring any other F1 team.

Vodafone are withdrawing their sponsorship deals the world over. They pulled their title sponsorship with Australian V8 supercar team 888 racing at the end of last year. 888 racing was one of the most successful and dominant teams in Aussie v8's - and still is, only now under the sponsorship of ...RedBull!!

Vodafone also pulled their 11 year sponsorship of the Aussie cricket team.

They are responding to MASSIVE amounts of complaints world wide about their cellular network. More money into infrastructure = less money for sponsorship.
