    Boullier was not in a position to act a Team Principal, yet he was blamed by some media and fans as one. On matrix management structure in reality they all bear responsibility for that car (under)performance. There is an article about Alonso claiming that McLaren had only one upgrade this season which worked as intended. Sounds like problem is then primarily in the design office, which could explain why they are trying to get the TR guy. What puzzles me why they move to hire brains only now, despite by some accounts they had this problem for some time (years?).

    It is a symptom of the sickness: The sport has become so ridiculously expensive that billionaires can get a foothold simply from richness and not talent, and drivers mostly have to bring money or sponsors comparable to a life's income or more. Maybe the sport should be renamed from Formula 1 to World's Fastest Bank Account.
  5. Mclaren-Renault

    I have the feeling that Vasseur is in a league of his own. When it comes to McLaren I think there is a tendency to regard Ron Dennis as a half god. He very clearly made a big difference for the his team but also some mistakes. Whitmarsh and Boullier take the blame but Ron placed them there and was their superior wasn't he?
  6. Mclaren-Renault

    I think Magnussen just isn't very comfortable with a large management structure. He had similar comments about Renault where he didn't have a clear feeling of who was in charge. He is just not into all the BS and hidden politics in a large organisation and so thrives in a smaller team. I think that is just what he is trying to say and then it gets blown out of proportions by the press and feeds speculations every time.His comments are more about himself - about what he likes - than a criticism of the teams he left. He's not a political animal, just a kid who likes to race hard.
  7. Mclaren-Renault

    I am facing the same challenge, so, I understand.
  8. Mclaren-Renault

    Yeah you are right . Poor memory.
  9. Mclaren-Renault

    I don't think he was fired from Renault. Comments...

    Now kidneys are failing...
  11. Mclaren-Renault

    Lots of it. Like i have already mentioned about bringing in key people and also the intention to be competitive. As you have already known nothing works faster in F1. Mclaren have been in decline for a period of time with also honda being a part of their issues as well(learning the hybrid technology). Takes time but eventually they should come back stronger i guess. You dont like them , thats ok. but i cannot convince you to like them. good that seb is not driving for them right Sauber yeah they are coming up because they were dead last for a couple of seasons now i guess. Frederic was fired from renault i guess (poor memory) and now he is doing a good job. They can only come up now right with the expansion going on( financially and management wise as well)
  12. Mclaren-Renault

    Brown is with McLaren in high position for about 1.5 year. For past four months he is CEO of racing. (It is not exactly promotion from his previous role in Technology Group, is it?) I am not as optimistic as others are here. In my world men who do move earth forward are of Frédéric Vasseur ilk, who just in short span of a few months without using big words quietly lifted Sauber from no man's land into zone of respectability. Still struggling, but demanding respect. Perhaps I should end here, because I do not like McLaren, I do not like people there, and perhaps that's in my way to see any positives in that camp. But then, on my defense, problems we see or hear about today were observed and written about in 2015 already, so, on what element of stagnation any new optimism is based on?
  13. Mclaren-Renault

    Well I dont hold any value to Magnussen's words. So i dont care about what he says. And definitely not Mclaren and Co.Also good things are not expected from after he was fired. I think if Dennis is still with Mclaren, the honda divorce wouldnt have happened. But he is not. Doesnt mean they have to go back to him . No one is irreplacable. Zak is doing alright bringing the right personnels. (planned ricci to replace alonso, Key and De ferran) . The intentions to become good is there. Currently they are in a mess they will come out of it is my thought process.
  14. Mclaren-Renault

    Wasn`t K-Mag at McLaren Mercedes, which were forced to become Mclaren Honda. With Ron Dennis as CEO. which in turn later became McLaren powered by Renault, after Ron departed. A period OF great change AND restructuring. So which Mclaren do K-Mag`s comments refer to? NOT the current, McLaren powered by Renault

    Ouch, that must hurt. Food for thought.
  16. 2019 Silly season

    At Sauber for now, with his future uncertain in terms of ever moving up in F1 hierarchy. I am actually not too impressed how drivers's lives are being tossed around. What happened with FI is very unfortunate, yet new owners were standing on sidelines, tight on money, and having Brawn as a chief PR man. Rumor has it, that the helping hand in the recovery deal was a man from the past, known as Ecclestone. What is important IMO is actually something else, not discussed that much, namely, downfall of FI was in the offing for some time, yet what the new owners have done to save the team instead letting it to fall? All what we got out of them is confirmation that there will not be any new entrant on the grid next season.
