Like many, I seriously doubt that a team at the leave of McLaren's has no plan B. It would surpise me if they didnt have a Plan Z formulated!
What Mr whitmarsh propobably means, is there is no clear/easy replacement for Lewis.
They find themself in a position where they have to decide whether they want to invest in the future and take a gamble on a younger driver, or focus on winning races and championships in the here and now with an established driver.
In terms of younger drives, Nico Hulkenberg would be a obvious choice for the team. However it wouldn't surpise me if they approached Sergio Perez, thus forcing Ferrari's hand with a "use it or lose it" style play.
However, if they are going for established, consistant drivers who are more than able to win races then looking at the current market, there is 1 clear option...
I give you, Mr Kimi Raikkonen.
