The Running Commentary

Will Merc call it quits????

I was catching up on the news today and noticed and the airways mounting speculation that Merc will withdraw from Formula One. This could be a huge blow to the formula one circus and Mclaren in particular.

Clearly the global crisis must be one of the motivating factors, but I wonder if the recent “Lie-gate” scandal together with spy-gate scandal of last season will have any bearing on the decision.

If they leave the sport, the blow will be huge and I don’t think that one scalp, in the form of Dave Ryan will be sufficient. I would certainly support further sanctions on other members of the Woking based team.

I grow increasingly worried that the senior management team have lost control and this team is beginning to embarrass their supporters and sponsors. We need some really decisive action here….
