    That wouldn't surprise me, the new team owners are Ericsson's sponsors and have decided, despite him being the worst driver on the grid, he is their number 1, he'll get the best of everything. As I understand that's why she quit, and I can't blame her one little bit. I think the same happened at Caterham when KK's chassis was broken by Bianchi ramming into him, they spent all their money fixing the **** guys car.

    Autosport saying it was Sauber who cancelled the deal. Believing the team can't afford to be uncompetitive next year.

    This is a disaster for McLaren. They now can't ditch Honda without being a pariah for forcing a manufacturer out of the sport. Probably won't be offered a supply from anyone else.

    Basically R.I.P McLaren 1966-2015
