Santander to be British Grand Prix title sponsor

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

SantanderBanco Santander will replace Foster’s Lager as the title sponsor of the British Grand Prix this year in a ??6 million deal.

Santander bought British building society Abbey (formerly Abbey National) in 2005 but look set to drop that brand name. They are also sponsoring McLaren-Mercedes under the Santander name in a five-year deal starting this season.

More importantly the loss of Foster’s sponsorship opens up the possibility of spectators being able to buy a decent beer at this year’s race.
