Santander chairman confirms Ferrari deal

NEWS STORY
27/11/2008

Santander chairman Emilio Botin has confirmed that his company will jump ship from McLaren to Ferrari in 2010, thereby refuelling speculation as to Fernando Alonso joining the Italian outfit.

"Santander will be with Ferrari in 2010, yes," said Botin, when asked about the move, which has been subject of continued speculation ever since Alonso left McLaren at the end of 2007.

While Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen are both contracted until the end of 2010, we all know that F1 contracts are not worth the paper they're printed on. Furthermore, with the Finn's recent admission that he lacked motivation for much of this season, the Maranello outfit will be watching him carefully next year.

Asked about Alonso, one of the primary reasons for Santander's deal with McLaren, Botin said: "Alonso is the best driver in the world and we would like to work with him."
