I guess it had to happen, but, I honestly thought he would only stop when removed in a (admittedly small ) wooden box. . . . . .

Just read about it in the DM Grin

Hopefully the new owners will bring some better competitivity between the teams and spread the cash around a little more fairly than at present Dont know

I was down at Prodrive today, the building is next door to Manor Racing ( who have gone bust ) and the Manor car park was full and plenty of people around, along with rumours of a new buyer ( Ron Dennis ) Surprised

Wouldn't that be wonderful, and (if the rules were ameliorated ) if, 5-7 years down the line they could win. . . . . don't get mad get even, always had a lot of time for the Ronster myself.

It would if it were to happen. Do remember that despite being ousted, Ron remains a major shareholder at McLaren, so there is still potential for any other team that he might be involved in to have some degree of affiliation to Woking (like Red Bull and Toro Rosso or Ferrari and Haas).

But does he really want to go out and do it again from scratch? I'd have thought that if anyone went for it then it would be more likely to be Dave Richards Question
