Tue, 13 February 2007, 12:22

The British grand prix is on the verge of signing a new naming sponsor.

After the beer brand Foster’s pulled the plug on its global backing of the sport, the Silverstone race is reportedly close to revealing a $11.7m deal with the Spanish bank Santander.

McLaren is also sponsored by the bank.

“Hopefully (this) means that the future of the British grand prix is now ensured for at least a few good years to come,” 1992 world champion Nigel Mansell is quoted as telling the newspaper Mail on Sunday.
