Shock at McLaren:Ron Dennis fired

The drastique decision was taken by the official partner of McLaren, Mercedes-Benz, which, in the near future, will also take full control over the British manufacturer. The main reason for the unexpected firing of Dennis was his inability to fully solve the problems created by the F1 Spygate in the 2007 season, together with losing both championship and drivers titles. However, Dennis could be given a new position at McLaren, but not at all one that is crucial to the team. Currently, Dennis owns 15% of the McLaren steak.
