Why the heck is BMWNA still advertizing during the Valencia race?

Yeah BMW the ultimate driving machine that is pulling out of F1...
The ads during the race just reminded me that they are quiters...
Even worse than Acura sponsoring the Pre Grid show after Honda has pulled out

They probably have a contract that lasts throughout the whole season.

BMW also has their logo next to the circuit map when the cars are doing they're lap before lining up on the grid.

We'll probably continue to see the ads next season without a BMW on the grid. Just because they're not going to be running in F1 doesn't mean they don't want to reach that demographic.

Simple as that. Just because they don't want to spend money competing doesn't mean they don't want to spend money selling to you.

And they probably already paid and bought the commercial time during F1 races and BMW "track analysis" or "grid line-ups"....so might as well use it instead of cancel them immediately....

What "sells" to me is seeing them win races not their stupid commercial during a race from which they are about to pull out.

I guess since BMWNA already bought "air times" on SpeedTV for the entire season...might as well use them....
