This story is just bogus farf from the media. First, there is not substantiation of the actual buyout. Second there is no statement from Dennis about any interest in returning to F1. Third, there is zero connection between an ownership position and team principle position - in fact, this connection does not exist. For Dennis to take on team principle position would be a demotion from his current status, so its an odd assertion to make that he would be pursuing the greater stature of ownership to take a lower management position. If there is any splinter of fact in this article, it may only be that Dennis is looking to have a larger share of McLaren as a whole (as a businessman) - with no connection to becoming directly involved in F1 operations - beyond his owning more of it. He may want more influence over who is managing F1 team operations, but the idea that he wants to take over as team principle is highly suspect.

If you can get controlling interest of a team, you get to make the decisions. And if you want to be team principal, you simply put it to the shareholders (i.e. yourself) and the job is yours.

When Ron controls the company, what Ron wants, Ron gets.
