Ron Dennis says the addition of races next year that will see the elimination of the summer break will add pressure and force McLaren to rotate their staff.
“This break is absolutely essential for all the people who travel,” he said. “They don’t get the right amount of time with their families and this gives them an opportunity to have at least one week where they are not at the office or workshop.
“It’s a key ingredient of keeping people motivated and happy when you are addressing the calendar, which makes next year’s difficult for them.
“We will have to accommodate that by rotating people. They will not be expected to go right through the season.”
Does this mean that he will start by rotating himself off the pit wall in favor for Martin Whitmarsh?Â Perhaps Ron himself sees this summer break as much needed and will decide to not attend a few races or a season.Â What about Heikki and Lewis?Â Guess the drivers are expected to go right through the season.
