Virgin to end Brawn GP deal after 2009

By on

Being the sharp businessman that he is, Richard Branson of the Virgin Group has admitted that he probably won't continue to sponsor the Brawn GP team next season, as the new outfit will demand much more money then. Branson is now looking forward to partnering up with new smaller teams.

Branson admitted his plans to the 'BBC Radio 5 Live', "We got in when it was very cheap and it's been great for us with global coverage, but I suspect next year the price will be astronomical and we may have to look somewhere else with a smaller team."
