What I understand Telmex is going to be the big sponsor next year.


Where did that come from?

As for Perez, Mclaren seem to be looking for somebody else as a driver. I'm guessing Honda is pusing hard for a top level driver.



The Telmex rumor is all over the place.

I personally think that this "partnership" between Honda and McLaren is going to end up with Honda acquiring an equity interest in McLaren. The same sort of arrangement that McLaren had with Daimler.

And I think the Mexico/Hispanic America connection is more important than Honda's credibility in Europe.

That said, I think Honda is counting on signing some kind of major sponsorship from somewhere. Mexico is not a bad place to look considering:

1) Honda's increased presence in Mexico
2) The coming Mexico F1 race
3) The growing importance of Hispanics in the USA market (Example: Mexico's World cup qualifying games on ESPN outdraw those of the US team by a considerable margin). It would not surprise me to see someone like Adrian Fernandez involved in the commercial/driver development side of this endeavor.
4) I personally think a team of Alonso/Perez is more likely than Alonso/Button.



If the Telmex rumor is true, Perez would be signed by now.
