McLaren and Gillette?

Post by Denorth »

Is this a beginning of the title sponsorship?

Aren't Gillette still Button's own sponsor, or has that ended now?

Doesn't look like a title sponsorship deal. Just a partner deal similar to the one GSK had for their Lucozade brand.

The title sponsor won't be announced until the European season is underway, Dennis hinted as much a few weeks ago.

thanks. That's my understanding too. Whole announcement is too... little.

Not sure about Gillette deNorth. But I am intrigued by your signature. (sorry way off topic, but so intriguing) I've often thought about such things. My take is that man's superb and keen intellectual abilities have been matched with primitive drives (sex, desire to dominate, etc) that produces all the hand-wringing about man's activities.

In the end we do the best we can and try not to ruin things for the others here today, and those who will follow us.

I'll leave women out of this discussion, since they are the best creatures on Earth, and likely the universe.

For half of us, it would fit the "not a hair out of the place" of Dennis' dictatorship.
As my brother said : "I've got the brain of a four year old. I'll bet he was glad to be rid of it".

Would a Honda title sponsor be out of the question, in advance of their engine partnership next year?

Or would Mercedes have a say in this?

offtopic - thank you. It's not my saying, but I do share a point of view that we are way too often acting exactly like this. The quote belongs to Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead)
and we are always too blind, often with rage, to see the path that women show us...

Sweet!! I am ashamed I did not recognize Lemmy's quote. I am a big metal-head and cherish seeing Motorhead.

You kick butt!!!!
