How's this for rumors from the "silly silly" season? Ferrari have permission to change their name to McLaren for next year. McLaren have refused to allow them to use their current silver colour scheme though, so they will be painted in the old traditional "Mclaren Orange". Mclaren, meanwhile, will be called Atkinsons, taken from the name of a celebrity fan who occasionally uses their products.
They will be painted Black, and instead of being known as silver arrows, they will now be nicknamed "Black Adders".
Finally, following the latest Massa-Hamilton controversy, you will not be allowed to attempt to overtake unless you are a full car's length in front of the car you wish to pass.
Roll on 2012!!!
