McLaren have to send Paddy Lowe onto gardening duty as they don't want anymore of their latest info going directly to Mercedes. I agree with the comment that Merecedes think they can spend their way into F1 similar to Honda and many others before them. You can buy everybody including Hamilton, Lowe and uncle Tom cobble and all but you will never win the FIA F1 World Championship until you let the team work without the pressure of money,money,money. If you don't believe me ask BMW!

Sad what money has done to this sport.

He has to put in a different role because they can't risk him taking info at the end of the year. So a thats a waist of salery for a whole year coming.

This all just too big buisness.

*McLaren will have him working a mop.

.. yes I was speaking in an immediate sense.

Would have been interesting to see how/if he could have helped Merc this year with their 'aero' development.
