Regardless of what Lulu says it is hard to swallow that he wasn't in the know of “things” what Lauda's plan was, being that he himself was poached by Lauda as long ago as Singapore, he is most probably falling back on a plan B, time will tell if he will have to jump back onto plan A and how long that will take.

of course its probably a sound exit strategy for MB to hand over a team fully capable of winning (on paper at least) having secured a top line driver,designer and management and share holders in team.

Rob you hit it right on target.

When the team is a mid pack establishment, it's not so critical. If Nico or Schumacher were in the title hunt one of them would be asked to cede way whenever the other came around.

Look at the 2009 season. Button was getting the preferential pit stop strategies when they realized early on that he was on to something.

As a Hamilton fan I'm desperate to see what happens in 2014, I do think the constructors will look like 1. Red Bull 2. Mercedes though. Ferrari and fuel efficiency/V6 are words that don't go together.
