richard, if the team is aware with what goes on in their garage especially with a departing driver, they won't be that dumb to give too much away that is deemed useful. Also its not only drivers who leaves teams but engineers, designers, even a wheel gunner. I have a friend whose cousin used to work for McLaren and was poached by Red Bull.

arcuid. is that tys nephew? red bull better watch out!

seriously, yes i did draw attention to designers etc, but dont forget, lulu will have been doing simulations already in the new car and will have seen many changes. he only gave macca a few days (f even that) warning. so he has seen a fair bit of next years car. does he understand it? who knows?

richard, don't drivers look at their rivals cars after a race? Seriously if you find it such a concern, why not call or write Martin Whitmarsh at the teams website and tell him what you think. If he responds, its not an issue then its not an issue.

I agreed .
We may even see Jenson's dark side .

If he does understand it will make next year even more exiting if Mercedes coil put on a charge, even if a mid to late season charge.
Personally I can't wait.

arcuid. i know its late and you are probably tired, but i am only pointing out what the media is saying, and saying "who knows what will happen". but the simple fact is that macca employees say that they have noticed an increased interest in some issues. if they are planning some new device, they of course have a right to be cautious. whitmarsh is not saying nothing is happening, but he is saying that lulu may not understand the nitty gritty.

that is the reason why when ferrari let kimi go, it was on the basis that he did not drive for anyone else for at least a year. it cost them money, but their car details were secured.

Richard, let McLaren deal with the issue should it become a problem. If they feel its not an issue, its not OR they are telling the media about Lewis' sudden interest might be their way of saying to Lewis we know what going on. Does that make sense? Yeah you are right it is getting late. Nearly 2am here where I am. :P
