Dennis: No question we are going forward

Ron Dennis says there is “no question” that McLaren is making progress following changes made earlier this season
Ron Dennis says there is “no question” that McLaren is making progress following changes made earlier this season.

Having returned as CEO of McLaren this year, Dennis installed Eric Boullier as racing director and has moved to shake up the team following a podium-less 2013. Jenson Button consistently references the changes made this year as cause for optimism for the future, and Dennis told Crash.net that he is confident the areas he has addressed are starting to pay dividends.

“There are loads of changes in the team, you just move things around,” Dennis said. “But it takes a while for things to bed down and to get the results. But we're going forward, there's no question we are going forward.”

With both drivers out of contract at the end of the season, the lack of a new deal for Button specifically has led to speculation that another one of the changes could be the driver line-up for next year. However, with Button himself saying he is in no rush to sort his future, Dennis agreed that it would be some time before McLaren is focusing on contracts.

“Our driver line-up for next year we will consider some way down the road yet,” Dennis said.

redhumvee: the problem at mclaren are button look at the team since he joined they have gone backwards they need to get rid of him before next year or they will have another crap year
Yes, McLaren have gone downhill. The fact that they havent won a Constructors Championship since 1998 is CLEARLY Button's fault, who joined the team in 2010! I must also be imagining that it is Button who has delivered McLaren their best result in the last 6 years. If I recall, Hamilton was also driving for McLaren during that period...

Not this year they aren't. Can only hope these structural changes make a difference next year. can't see them winning a race this year without retirements, not the fault of teh drivers though.
