According to Le Quotidien, Nissan will no longer be a sponsor next season. No replacement sponsor has been found up to date.

The original article says that since Nissan has a contract for the 2013 season, they will still have to pay even though their name won't be associated with the team anymore

hmm, unlike perhaps in the Rabobank situation where the doping stuff may influence customers these days, I can't see Nissan's business being negatively impacted by staying with the team if they have to pay anyway. A bit strange I think.

Not so strange IMO:
Fränk Schleck doping, Bryunell doping, and Radishack is mentioned in the Padua case.

What I wrote had nothing to do with doping. The team has become a laughing stock. Who wants their brand tied to Abandy Schleck.
