Yeah so it seems, I wonder what will happen to Whitmarsh, he hasn't been the most charismatic leader of the F1 team to say the least.

Yep, just heard this on the radio.  Dennis is back!

 

Bye bye Whitmarsh or something else in the team?  Dennis obviously hasn't been happy with the lowly positions since he left.

He's been busy building a car company. Now he needs to rebuild the F1 team. That's what the road cars were built on the back off.

He'll be sent to the goulag along with anyone else in Woking who dares to question the return of Der Fuhrer.

McLaren is a F1 team, that in one season won all but one of the races in a season, to not being on the podium in 2013. Dennis and McLaren cannot carry on like that. They have to be up there for the company to sell cars.

Apparently Whitmarsh was not present when Dennis addressed the workforce yesterday.

Interesting, will have to see how it shakes out, going to every single GP is pretty hard work these days so I'm not sure if Dennis himself is going to do it, time will tell hey.

To be fair, that was very unusual circumstances - they were the only team who turned up with a brand new car built around a brand new V6 Turbo engine for the last season of those regulations. Everyone else was taking a longer term view and was caught out by the McLaren move.

 

Don't forget that McLaren floundered for much of the last couple of decades, so last season wasn't a one-off.

McLaren could reportedly miss the first test after their 2014 car, the MP4-29, failed one or more mandatory FIA crash tests - Not the best start to the season.

Not enough given their resources. Ron is not the man to lead the race team.

I'm not sure if Ross would consider working for Ron. Despite his obvious skills he would only ever be an employee at Ronsworld.

Ross would be great to run the team if Ron left him to it and concentrated on running the business side and making money to help the race team.

Mmmmmm interesting.

Can't be easy for him, the guy that effectively created the team and made the company what it is today. Yes lots of money to get it there but either way its a sad day for F1 personally.
