Martin Whitmarsh's job as McLaren team principal will be on the line in the next two grands prix, according to a report.

The Daily Mail claims that "there is growing discontent among engineering and design staff at McLaren about Whitmarsh's leadership".

The 53-year-old, who is also CEO of McLaren Racing and Chief Operating Officer of the McLaren Group, is under pressure following a catalogue of blunders at the British Grand Prix....

I don't really believe this tbh. Ron likes him (I think). Was he personally responsible for any of the errors? Is F1 going to turn in to a football style "sack the manager" every time a team has a bad result? McLaren have a simple problem. The same problem as Ferrari, Mercedes, Williams, Renault etc. This year's car isn't as good as the Red Bull.

Ron would never have stood for this.He would have had anyone unhappy with his leadership tidily buried under the gravel.

Good job that it was in the Daily Mail, otherwise I might have doubted it. ;)
