McLaren picks up Spanish cash

McLaren Mercedes has done a deal with Spanish insurance group Mutua Madrilena, a sponsor of Fernando Alonso at Renault in recent seasons. The insurer clearly wishes to continue its connection with the double World Champion.

Mutua Madrilena branding will be located on the front wing endplates of the McLaren-Mercedes MP4-22 next year, replacing Mobil, although the US oil company is expected to remain a major presence on the car as it has been for 12 years.

Mutua Madrilena will also be seen on the sleeves of the McLaren overalls, presumably replacing the departed AT&T.
