So...finally he admits what many have been saying for years! With better management skills, Alonso would still be at Mac today and winning many WDC's for them. And Coughlan and Ryan would not have been hung out to dry.

calm observer. coghlan and ryan had nothing to do with dennis. they decided to try and set up their own team, and enlisted the help of stepney to steal secrets from ferrari. i never liked the cold style of management used by dennis, but you cannot blame him for spygate, even though he had knowledge of it.
