As much I have criticized Ron Dennis over the years (because he was kind of a d#ck), this was his life work and his creation. McLaren was Ron Dennis and most of what it achieved was under his tutelage. Now at 70, he moved on, left out of the company he built, and working on other projects. It feels like the guy was sent out to pasture. It is a real shame.

In many respects, Frank Williams has a better situation, with him still with the team that he built and with his daughter now running it.  He can disengage and retire gracefully and when he is ready to.

Ron Dennis did not prove what he is able to do in F1 with Mclaren
New team entry, could it be the return of Ron Dennis with HIS own team
NOT Bruce Mclaren`s team

  • Did Ron (Dennis) realise that Honda were NOT up to the new era in turbo F1,
    Which is WHY he sold McLaren COMPLETELY
    Get out whilst EVERYBODY remembers Mclaren as WINNERS
    Honda NOW looking at getting OUT
    Winding up the Sauber deal

McLaren as WINNERS? No kidding. Living on c#cktails of yesteryears? Do you realize that last WCC that McLaren won dates back to 1998? Almost 20 years back. I would not be jumping up and down with joy over such record.

Unfortunately Ferrari is not much better off in that regards, because last WCC was just 10 years back, namely in 2008, but at least they are more modest about it..

>INDEED Mika Hakkinen
Has there BEEN a BETTER driver SINCE
Lets look at it, Hamilton - Didn`t come from  NO where
Ron (Dennis) manufactured him into the BEST.
HAS Hamilton PROVEN himself WITHOUT the FASTEST car
ALL of HAMILTON`S titles HAVE come from, being IN
the FASTEST car on the grid !!!
