Ron Dennis, McLaren Team PrincipalFollowing Auto Motor und Sport claims that Ron Dennis would be planning to retire at the end of this season if his team wins the 2008 F1 championship, a McLaren-Mercedes spokesman has immediately denied such rumors. “Recent articles suggesting that Ron is considering stepping back, or that he will step back if the world championship is won by McLaren Mercedes this year, have been based around a very old quote,” said the spokesman.

“Ron has made it clear on numerous occasions that he has made no decision as to if and when he may or may not step aside. Ron’s, and the team’s, focus remains on winning every Grand Prix we start – and that applies to this season, next season, the season after that, and so on,” he continued.

“As a result, we are maintaining development of our 2009 car, at undiminished levels, while continually improving our 2008 car, race by race, test by test, in the normal way,” he added.
