New Ferrari title sponsor?

Another potential sponsor has been linked with Ferrari’s F1 outfit.

With news that the much reported ‘De Beers’ cash may not materialise, it is now suggested that ‘Alice’ – a Telecom Italia subsidiary – could be lining up to replace the lost Vodafone sponsorship in ’07 and beyond.

Italian media sources hint at a $25m per-year deal, and the remote possibility that Vodafone and Ferrari could end their deal early to allow the sponsorship to begin in 2006.

This could explain Ferrari’s so-far blank livery on its 2006 car, and the fact that McLaren – Vodafone’s 2007 destination – is running around the test tracks wearing traditional orange.
