In a statement today, Jean Todt has suggested that McLaren, the maker of the standard ECU for all F1 cars, will have the advantage. Many of us wondered just how this would work. I must admit that a year ago I thought McLaren would be a good company to work with Microsoft in making a standard ECU for all cars because of their commitment to integrity and dedication to fairness in the sport. A year later, I am not so sure. I think a better scenario would have been for Max to keep the ECU as a third party product so no one can make statements such as Todt’s today.
