McLaren today confirmed that their long standing agreement with Vodafone as their title sponsor will end after this season. The move is not unexpected and it is quite likely that from next season onwards Telmex will become a major sponsor due to their long standing relationship with Sergio Perez.
In a press release Martin Whitmarsh, McLaren’s team principal, confirmed the team’s decision:
“We’re immensely proud that, having been set a number of ambitious challenges by Vodafone back in 2007, together we’ve met or exceeded each and every one. Our focus is on continuing to drive results for all our partners throughout the 2013 season and we look forward to making a major title partnership announcement towards the end of the year.”
