It's pretty much been known since January (and yes I posted about it), the UK media likes to put a spin on things to make things more dramatic lol.


He's concentrating on the roadcar division. Without a roadcar division to keep the company afloat, McLaren will always be FIA's bitch. F1 brings in 85% of their revenue.

Uncle Ron hasn't done much at the races except for doing interviews, watching the races. It's been Whitmarsh's team since March.

I thought he stepped down during the offseason. He hasn't been on pit lane all year and hasn't been in McLaren garb when interviewed this year.
