F1: McLaren signed World Champion Fernando Alonso for 2007!

Tuesday, December 20, 2005

Shocking news.... McLaren stunned the Formula One world by announcing they have signed World Champion Fernando Alonso for the 2007 season. Interestingly, the move comes just days after McLaren signed a lucrative sponsorship deal with Vodafone. Conincidence?

Team boss Ron Dennis said: "It's great that our strong belief in the strength and competitiveness of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes package has been further endorsed by the World Champion."

Alonso revealed he is excited by the prospect of a new challenge at McLaren after giving Renault their first World Championship as a constructor last season.

Dennis revealed he has yet to decide which of his current drivers will make way, although Raikkonen has been strongly linked with a move to Ferrari to replace Michael Schumacher in 2007.

Quote of the Day:

"To become part of a team with such a desire to succeed and passion for performance is a dream come true for any Formula One driver." F1 2005 World Champion Fernando Alonso on his move to McLaren Mercedes in 2007.

Man, all sorts of surprises. This one is shocking indeed. I don't know if it's for the better or worse, can't really tell. Interesting, nonetheless.

And Michelin will be out of F1 in 2007, too. What on earth...
what! serious shit?! hahhaa Ferrari is going down the drain. Come to think of it, what's wrong with red color? ManU too ain't playing well, now ferrari not driving well. I'm shocked too!

the F1 tickets giving 5% discount, makes no difference, bodoh...
