International media have been invited to a press conference at which the Spanish bank Santander will almost certainly be confirmed as a major new multi-year sponsor of the Ferrari team beginning in 2010.

The Italian team, also expected to have signed with Fernando Alonso for 2010, said both Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo and Santander's Emilio Botin will be present for the announcement at Monza.

Santander is currently a McLaren sponsor, in a deal dating back to Alonso's move to the British team two years ago.

Despite Santander's new Ferrari alliance being announced at Monza, however, it is not expected that Alonso's move from Renault to the famous Maranello squad will be announced until later this year.
