Very interesting yellowbelly. On my computer it shows Yellowbelly @245 advising rach1985 that she had the wrong year for Mclaren to have to buy their engines.A case of failing eyesight???? better have a trip to specsavers Mmmmm Hope you got your facts right on the other blog
@263Not sure what you mean or who it is directed at, certainly it can't be me as that is not my moniker and I have nothing to apologise for, especially not to you, and I gave no incorrect facts.I will leave you to talk to yourself, I'm off to the other blog for a more intelligent and intelligible level of debate, bye.
After I assured Rach 1985 that she was right and yellowbury was wrong unfortunately his pride could not let him apologise and enter sensible debateIt is fine to post personal opinions but if you offer incorrect corrections in the end you will get caught out
@261But you didn't, did you?As you say, McLaren have in-house experts in both finance and marketing. They will no doubt find the best deal for the team.
I will disregard the comment by yellowbury @259 as sarcastic drivel, I am sure he is aware that in an organisation that depends on sponsership they employ specialists for this purpouse
@257With your limited knowledge as an FD you really should know the difference between principle and principal, more cr@p from you, I'm afraid.
@255With your limited knowledge as a Finance Director you ought to offer your services to McLaren and find them a new, cash-rich sponsor. I'm sure they, and we, would be most grateful.
@257 I think Mercedes isn't the worst love for Lewis. As I've said previously a change isn't always a bad thing. I just think it will take a couple of years to make them into a title winning team. It took MSC a while with Ferrari and merc are further along than Ferrari were at that point. People saying though Lewis is wasting his best years I think are wrong. Both MSC n FA were/are best early 30s
Have no fear Rach1985@256 Mercedes are improving every race and come next season the combined talents of Hamilton and Brawn plus Mercedes resources will impact on McClaren. Hamilton is not leaving for money but is unable to work for a team and being stabbed in the back by his team mate and team principle. All this will surface once Hamilton has broken ties with Mclaren
@254 but if that is all Mclaren can afford surely being paid the same as Jenson is better plus having the chance to win another title. Rather than earn lots of money but not win anything. I do think Lewis should be on more than JB but we how things are going financially for Mclaren I feel an offer of the same money as JB is fair
Sorry yellowbelly you appear to have unlimited access to Mclaren F1 finances information that others do not,unless this is more crap and therefore does not alter my previous comment in any way. In any global finacial crisis there are always some winners, the skill is in finding themI held the position of Finance Director for many years so have a "limited" knowledge on these matters
@Rach1985I wold expect the better driver and on top the younger driver should get more money, don't you? Unless you think Jenson is as good as Lewis? :O
@250 I can see Fernando having to take a pay cut also at his next negotiation. It is not realistic to keep paying these wages in current climate. If Lewis was offered the same as Jenson again I would say that's a fair offer.
You mean the global financial crisis, crunch was used in the term 'credit crunch'. Where has the money gone? Whoever has it pay it LH!
@249 F1expertNo need to be offensive, you only let yourself down. Haven't you heard of the global financial crunch, everywhere is suffering, China & the Gulf oil states included. The same level of money is simply not there as when expiring sponsorship deals were signed. Still, if you want to talk cr@p I will defer to an expert!
