    ^^^ Hmmmm interesting thought that. I hope Whitmarsh stays, but Brawn would be a good choice, especially given his ties with Honda.

      Does Whitmarsh really have what it takes to lead a title winning team? He has headed an operation that has dropped the ball a number of times in the past few seasons.

      He seems like an OK guy from what the media shows, but maybe he doesnt have the palle to run Mclaren.

        Firstly, Brawn has to serve 6 months gardening leave.

        Secondly, why? He was an equity partner at Mercedes/Brawn. Why go backwards?

          front look wider than usual - could be an old photo though
          It's a hard cover under the soft cover to disguise the wing.

            Because Ron Dennis knows how he works and would keep red tape away from him.

              Yeah but no.

              Ross is rich (not Bernie rich, but well off). So money isn't a factor.

              He's started his own company and won the WDC. So that isn't a factor.

              He's used to being the boss and independent, so why work for an OCD person like Ron? So thats a factor.

              He's old (enough) not to want to start from scratch (which is effectively what will happen in 2015 once Honda join), so that might be too much effort to see a long term reward. Ie what has happened over the past 3-4 years at Mercedes.

              The only reason I can see him joining is to say a big "F U" to Nicki Lauda.

                Personally given ross has no money issues I could see him taking a challenge like going to Williams and turning them around. They have switched to merc power plants and he'd probably get total control to do as he pleases. With a name like his on board they'd probably attract some decent sponsors as well
                If in doubt power out

                  Because Ross, like a lot of the old boys, is a racer.

                  Its not about money, fame, but about the challenge and want to win.

                  Imagine walking into Macca and making them winners this season.. it builds the legend of RB

                    My prediction is Ross will be there for 2015.
                    I hope Dennis shows Sam Michael the door too, I tried liking him at Williams, hate him being at McLaren.

                      awesome to hear about fuel consumption concerns. That'll make for exciting racing

                      At T2, "alrighht Seb, switch to fuel map 2 and coast"

                        Was there animosity between Lauda and Brawn? Had to look it up but all I found was a too many chiefs not enough indians situation and excerpts of Lauda saying Brawn left "amicably"...
