Fernando Alonso, McLaren-Mercedes, 2007 | Daimler ChryslerOrdinarily I wouldn’t bother writing a separate post about a sponsor leaving a team, such as today’s news Spanish insurance group Mutua Madrilena are leaving McLaren before the 2008 season. According to Autosport:

Mutua Madrilena said in a statement that its decision to leave McLaren was not linked with Alonso’s exit and that they had already decided on the move back in November.

Mutua Madrilena followed Alonso from Renault to McLaren at the beginning of this season. And Fernando Alonso’s departure from McLaren was announced on the second of November this year. Who do they think they’re kidding? (Links below)
