I am still stunned Fry managed to last a year let alone more than a decade at the top. Certainly his record of dubious decision making from the moment he stepped into BAR was his legacy. Mercedes might now have a chance without him.

While, Fry does not have a great track record, I still do not understand what is so great about Wolff. He had this same position with Williams for a few years they're still in the same place when he came in and when he left.

IMHO, Brawn will do well to leave this Merc. Would love to see him take over McL.

Why on earth would Ross want to go to McLaren. .the outfit, compared to Mercedes are pot less

Whitless has already been sounding out in close season on how times are hard blah blah blah. .on the other hand Mercedes are rolling in it thanks to being bankrolled by the greatest car manufacturer in the world. .they've even got McLaren's Paddy Lowe sat at home kicking his heels for just in case things happen to go pear shaped.

Speaking of which, McLaren's major sponsor has also kicked them into touch.

From an outsiders point of view, it's not looking good for them....as already been said on here. .they could well be following Williams into the cold lonely darkness.

At Williams Toto had limited resources putting it mildly. .you can only work with the cloth you've been given. ..in Toto's case he was given an handkerchief.

With Lauda at the top Merc have no chance. Look at what he did at Jaguar...nothing but demoralise the work force! A big reshuffle will surely damage the stability of the team. As for Toto...the less said the better.

All the praise about toto is because he was in the business side of things at Williams and they made a very nice profit when being floated on the stock market. When a very well known social website did the same thing they did rubbish.

Buttery was getting rid of him so he had to look for a drive else where.. He would of been better off just keeping his mouth shut
