No. Does he create a negative atmosphere of fear internally? No. Does he completely misunderstand how to handle creative, competitive people? No. Does he lack intellectual fire power? No. Does he lack a fundamental understanding and experience of racing? No. Is he an awful communicator? No. If one were to ask those same questions of Arrivabene, the answer would be yes to all of them."

Fixed that for you

We all know McLarens problems are down to Honda. This year they will challenge for the WCC. Even 2018 was Honda's fault because McLaren had to adapt the chassis so much to fit the awesome Renault PU.

I checked F1 records thinking Kubica’s layoff would be the longest between F1 starts but Jan Lammers has the record when he started a race in 1982 before starting his next race in 1992.

Andreas Seidl will be running McLaren’s F1 team. He was the former boss of Porsche’s LMP1 team.

Hope the folks going have a good time.

I think it's the wrong decision. They should have brought someone else in. I don't really see why you would take your best technical person... and put him in a management, political position which is not his forte. Why would you do that?

You can easily throw away a couple of tenths of a second in the car and then you're scratching to get up there, be competitive and make all the right decisions. What happens at the end of 2019 if Red Bull steps between them and suddenly Ferrari are third or fourth in the championship? It could happen. [Then] his head's gonna roll. They might lose a very good asset because they put him in a position he shouldn't be in.
still...Binotto looks like Todt and Brawn had a lovechild. you can't take that away from him, Mr. Anderson.

But then one of my coworkers has to fill those shifts. I won't do that to someone else just because some people continue to act like childrens.

I was sick while working Christmas Eve and Christmas and I didn't call in sick then, I'm not gonna do it now either. I would feel guilty the entire time I was there and would not be able to enjoy the experience.

There is enough Busch to make you forget about your coworkers and have a good time. $1.79 at the gas station across the street.
