fuck me it is all going on today!!

Boullier set to take over at McLaren




Eric Boullier is set to become McLaren's new Formula 1 team principal after quitting the Lotus team.
McLaren made no mention of its team principal plans during its launch event for the team's new car on Friday, but the absence of Whitmarsh from any media material has made it clear that he is unlikely to remain a part of the F1 team.
Following intense speculation about plans for McLaren following Ron Dennis's review of the organization, Boullier has resigned from his position as Lotus F1 team principal with immediate effect.
The Frenchman, who has done an impressive job at Lotus despite financial constraints, is now favorite to land the role at McLaren.
Lotus has confirmed that its owner Gerard Lopez will be its new team principal for 2014, and will share responsibility for running the outfit with co-chairman Andrew Ruhan.
Although the loss of Boullier will be a blow to Lotus, the team remains hopeful that it has a strong commercial and managerial platform going forward.
Lopez said: "Lotus F1 Team has never stood still and we head into what promises to be an exciting 2014 season with an innovative new car, new partners and a new management structure. Great things have been achieved over the past years and we need to continue this momentum.
"We thank Eric for all his hard work over the past four years and we are confident we can continue to fight as one of the top teams in Formula 1 over the seasons ahead."
Lotus is missing next week's first pre-season F1 test, but plans to unveil its new E22 car at the start of the second test in Bahrain.

The front of both the Lotus and the McLaren are hard to look at. The nose/wing combo on the McLaren is ludicrous.

I'm now very curious to see the solutions of Ferrari and especially Red Bull. I hope they're different to each other. Divergent designs hold the promise of an unpredictable season. After last year's drone, unpredictable would be welcome.

When the team owner decides he'll run the team himself, and share the duties, run for the hills. It almost sounds like a cost-saving measure. No wonder Kimi left.

I wonder where Whitmarsh will end up? Overall, his tenure at McLaren wasn't splendid. Last season appeared to be a big misjudgment about how advanced the team was in developing its new ideas, given how well they'd finally developed the 2012 car.

The word going around is that he'll be offered a job somewhere within the McLaren empire but not in the F1 team.

Duck billed platypus. Man, the noses sure do look ugly. So interesting that there's not a consensus design. When does Red Bull unveil?
