Another roumor says that Ferrari intends to make big party at the end of the season in Valencia, not only to welcome to Alonso, but also to present its new sponsor for 2010, the Spanish bank Santander. Alonso could be the "surprise guest" of the event, but would use casual clothes, since his contract with the French house expire until December.
