It doesn't matter what nationality he is, he was long-time #1 in the world. Btw he lives in Monaco.
What does him being #1 in the world have to do with a French car company sponsoring him? Peugeot isn't exactly known for making luxury cars, they're more of a middle class kind of car company really.

The biggest reason why he lives in Monaco is because it's a tax haven.

You're not discovering America to claim about Monaco, many famous sportsmen stay there because of taxes. But Monaco has big connection to France. Maybe because of that he signed with french company.
Following your logic #1 should be only sponsored by Rolls&Royce or Ferrari? It's a business, who pay more will get #1. And it's a good to image of every company to sponsor #1, not #10.

Apples to oranges there. Rolls Royce is like the benchmark on luxury cars, whereas Ferrari is more about performance and speed.

Peugeot sponsors many players, both French and non-French. I think Almagro and a number of other players.

Peugeot is not a middle of the road car company e.g Ford, or General Motors. It is slightly above the middle tier. Out of the French car companies, probably the most luxurious.

But so what ? Would you rather be sponsored by Mercedes, if it gave you 1 million a year, or KIA if it gave you 5 million a year ?

Exactly!! There's no chance he would actually drive a Peugeot, I've had 3 of 'em in my driving lifetime but I didnt buy one because of any player sponsorship. They pay him big bucks, he wears a little patch and turns up at the odd promo event. No harm done, everyone's happy! But he won't drive one . . . . unless its for one of their adverts.

The only chance of him driving one, is if he has a city car given to him for free when he travels from tournament to tournament.
