I don't see it happening. Knowing what happened the last time, and the absolute disaster the team turned into under Whitmarsh, I don't see Ron going anywhere. If he does, it'll be pretty much the end of McLaren. Again.

Why Ron must go if Alonso wants to come ? After all Alonso s nice words about Ron ? Hmm . Ron was out long enough to give Aloso a chance to come back . He didnīt and went to Ferrari . To be honest , I donīt support Ferrari s rejects even if that reject is Alonso . It is a matter of taste .

Well only time will tell, we can only guess at the moment.
It has played rather nicely into Ron's hands for the negotiations....Alonso has nowhere else really to go...so Ron can say we'll pay you x rather than having to pay whatever he asks for...

on another note: if you were having a dinner with C Horner, is there anything you would like to ask him? Clean and polite questions...i'm not going to upset him...hopefully.

Well, word around the camp fire is that Alonso has a deal with Honda, not with McLaren. So it's going to turn out like the Aryton Senna deal. Oh hell...here we go again.

I will cheer for the other McLaren but i cannot cheer a car driven by the worst cheat the sport has known in recent years.

Same here. I just can't stomach it. The crime of it all is that he's such a good driver he didn't need to.

Me either. But God help me, I love McLaren so.

I just can't for the life of me figure out why you'd rehire a guy that ruined your team and ran you out of Formula 1. I just can't. I don't care how damn good he is, and let's face it, he's tops, he cheated huge, blamed everybody else, and got Ron relegated.

What really makes me mad as hell is Alonso is so damn good he doesn't have to cheat...and yet he has. Twice. I've been watching F1 since 1975. I have never in my life seen anybody cheat twice, ruin team bosses and others careers, and never get so much as a fine for it.

Simply staggering.

just twice?
Piquet, Ferrari data, fernando is faster than you, mass dampers, and a few other things i could mention but would pop me into court i think....

on another note, have you seen the p13 road car? getting towards my price range now! Although the Mp4-12c is getting cheaper too now....i'd love a McLaren in the garage, always wanted one since i was at the British motorshow when the F1 was unveiled and there was no-one looking at it..... was allowed on the stand, sat in it and actually first met Ron then...i must have looked one scared kid.

Well, the two big ones (Crash Gate and Ferrari Spy/Test Data Gate) were clearly Alonso as the only person that benefited from them directly was him. The Mass Damper was a design element from Renault on both cars. Team orders are team orders, and let's face it, Alonso was the best chance Ferrari had at winning. It sure as hell wasn't Massa.
