Is this a fallout due to the arrival of Whitmarsh -

Think it's would be good for Alpine.

I think Otmar has been somewhat at odds with the Strolls since they took over. I have no facts to back that up. I think something like the replacement of Perez with Vettel had little input from Otmar. It was trust upon him. It's kind of crazy to have a team principle having little input on both team drivers.

With regards to the rumor... I'm not sure if this is just BS, Otmar leaving before the axe, or Otmar just leaving cause he's had enough of the moves that have force his hand and wants to go to a place he'll have more input.


I don't think Whitmarch is a candidate to replace Otmar at AMR.

He has not been in the 'limelight' much lately has he? go back 2 years and he was on all the TV interviews and buttonholes, we sometimes do not see him during a weekend now. Smoke or fire?
I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it-
Voltaire, or several other claimants.

He was on sky telecast a few races ago. We seem to see Toto and Horner all the time. The rest, Binotto, Seidl, Tost we don't see alot of.

Seems to be a done deal. He was also instrumental in getting Vettel so lets see if anything change their.
