I'd like to hear your speculation on a subject. If they were to kick out Boullier at the end of the season, who should McLaren recruit in his place?
At the moment they seem to have a situation of creative inbreeding and political infighting compareable of Ferrari at it's worst moments. In my humble and completetly unfounded opinion, they should go for an external recruitment. So, who would be good for them? And who can they get?
Horner, Wolf and Arrivabene are out, that would be a huge step down for them, although all three of them have done the job before. The principles of the mid-field teams might be tempted by the facilities and budget of McLaren. Lucky for McLaren Cyril Abiteboul seems to be where he wants to be, so he's out. Robert Fernley is good at making good cars on a shoestring budget, but could he do great cars on a lavish budget? That's a big question mark. Guenther Steiner seems to be a excellent doer, and has a toughness to him that would be needed. But does he really have the experience to run a big team? Tost and Vasseur are just to small fish to make it work at the moment.
Paddy Lowe might be a name under consideration, and perhaps he is just better at a big team than a small. On the other hand Mercedes doesnt seem to crumble after his departure.
Ah, what the heck, considering the choices McLaren has done lately, they'll probably go for Monisha Kaltenborn. That would be great news for Williams, who would no longer be last.
