It really stresses me that this needs announcing; it implies that the situation changes year-to-year and there is a prospect of RLM not happening one year.

I think RLM is a big enough deal that somebody would turn up to sponsor them in all likelihood. Even if it fell through one year, the team would surely go anyway, as they did for at least a decade (and a half? Two?) before they brought partners on board.

It does surprise me that the contract is apparently still rolling annually, despite the benefits it has brought to both parties. I assume that's come from Mobil 1 being prudent/cautious more than anything else.

Although in the past RLM was somewhat of a once a year hobby but now it is how they earn their living by commentating on multiple series on multiple continents, so they can't really turn up and do it gratis. (Do it for free once and everyone will expect it free forever).

(I'd gladly chip in for an RLM crowdfunder, but I don't think they'd ever do that.)

It was never running without commercial partners. When it started it was sponsored by Jaguar, then by Autosport (who sold the sponsorship on to others, like Bentley and Corvette some years), then Gulf and most recently Mobil 1. I may have missed some too.

Don't underestimate how much it costs to do something like RLM: There's absolutely no likelihood that they would do it if there were no commercial partners.
