That would be too good, but it was a little more:

McLaren-Honda – 320 places
Button: 165 (Canada: 15, Austria: 25, Belgium: 50, Italy: 5, Mexico: 70)
Alonso: 155 (Austria: 20, Belgium: 55, Italy: 10, Russia: 35, Mexico: 10, Brazil: 25)

Strangely it is backing for Jenson Button by the UK division. I guess this is an extension of an already scaled back deal that existed this season.

Not the big deal that Ferrari have.

jenson has proved to be extremely good news for santander in the uk
don't know how they stand with alonso in spain
to the optimist a glass is half full ; to the pessimist a glass is half empty ; to the F1 engineer the glass is twice as big as it needs to be
