    Anyway, we'll see if Ferrari made the right call during this winter break pit stop.

    Interesting. I figured the pit strategy was handled by the strategists...

    Zak "The Mouth" Brown has announced the hiring of Andreas Siedl who ran the powerful Porsche LMP program.

    Someone on the internet took the time to compile McLaren's executive structure:

    CEO Zak Brown
    Sporting Director Gil De Ferran
    Managing Director (F1) Andreas Seidl
    Managing Director (Indy) Bob Fernley
    Technical Director James Key
    Chief Engineer Peter Prodromou
    Operation Director Simon Roberts
    Team Manager Paul James

    Bob Fernley and Gil DeFerran look out of place in those positions, but I don't know if a straight switch is the best choice.
    Also, I hope their egos aren't as big as their titles, because there's way too many people with big words on their office door signs.

    Compare that to Red Bull: Horner, Newey and Helmut; or Mercedes: Toto, Allison, Niki.
    acket.

    Classic example of too many chiefs and not enough indians.

    Ferrari close to sign in Mick Schumacher as a new member of its Ferrari Driving Academy and test driver; possible debut at, either, post-Barhain or post-MontmelÚ tests dedicated to rookie drivers with maximum 2 F1 races driven.
    In the case Mick won't be used as test driver for those tests the first in line right after the Formula 3 champion is the 18 year old aussie Marcus Armstrong while Callum Ilott chances are dim.

    Good, i say! I like how the Sabines have managed his career. And the kid, while not another of the second comings of Senna we have recently seen in abundance, has the very Schumacher habit of Doing. The. Work.

    Armstrong is a Kiwi, his dad is a prominent Car dealer in my old home town.
    Seems the kid can drive alright too.
