Gillette could be new McLaren title sponsor - report

According to Germany's magazine, Gillette is the one who may be next sponsor for McLaren.

Mar.20 (GMM) Another name has emerged as a possible successor for McLaren's departing title sponsor Vodafone.

The conventional wisdom in the paddock is that the Sergio Perez-linked Telmex - Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim's telcom giant - will arrive to replace Vodafone at the end of the year.

"I'm a little sad they are not with me this year, because the team still has a contract with Vodafone," Perez said on Monday.

"I would love to see the blue on my car again."

Germany's Auto Motor und Sport, however, has thrown another name into the hat.

The magazine said the "latest rumour" is that McLaren's next title sponsor could be Gillette, the US multinational and producer of safety razors.

Previously, Gillette - the market leader in Brazil - sponsored former F1 driver Bruno Senna at Williams and Lotus.
