Max Chilton's down as "TBA", and Caterham still haven't decided on their drivers for 2014, so they're the only ones left.

 

*Vettel's chosen 5 as his number, but because he's the champion, he gets #1 for now.

Really? Max Chilton.

Sounds like no one could top the money Chilton brings in :laugh:

 

Still i'm sure he'll remind us of his consistency last year.

Also the reason Chilton's number is TBA is because he chose 5, and, as he said, "didn't get it because of some guy who does this [gestures] a lot and has won a few championships"

 

He also said that the new number will look good in his name...

 

M4x? Chil70n?

 

Dunno, obviously 17 can't be had, so they seem likely.

We knew that even when he had #16.

Dennis to make changes at McLaren after being appointed Group CEO

 

McLaren looks set for a major management overhaul ahead of the 2014 Formula 1 season, AUTOSPORT has learned, after former team boss Ron Dennis was appointed as Group CEO.

 

After the announcement, Dennis has vowed to bring change to McLaren to get it back to the front of the Formula 1 grid following a disappointing 2013 season.

 

AUTOSPORT understands that Dennis addressed factory staff in Woking on Thursday afternoon to outline his increased responsibilities to the F1 team.

He also made it clear that a new structure was likely to be put in place, and a change of team principal cannot be ruled out.

 

"There will be changes," he told the staff during the address that lasted for 20 minutes. "We will win again."

 

Current team boss Martin Whitmarsh, who was not present for the address, remains in charge for now and sources insist that no decision has been taken yet on whether or not he will be replaced.

 

A final call on the matter will however be made in February, when Dennis will outline whether Whitmarsh stays or if another figure will be appointed to run the F1 team.

 

Dennis, who was team principal from 1982 to 2009, has replaced Whitmarsh as the Group CEO with immediate effect.

In statement issued by the team, Dennis outlined that he had been appointed to the role with the mandate of doing whatever is necessary to get McLaren back on track.

 

"My fellow shareholders have mandated me to write an exciting new chapter in the story of McLaren, beginning by improving our on-track and off-track performance," he said.

 

"Over the coming weeks I intend to undertake a thorough and objective review of each of our businesses with the intention of optimising every aspect of our existing operations, whilst identifying new areas of growth that capitalise on our technologies, and where appropriate further investing in them."

The Formula 1 community came together this week to express its great shock and deep sadness at the news that Marussia has retained Max Chilton for 2014.

Doesn't look bad at all. I'd like to see a frontal shot though to see whether or not it has a penis nose.

Surely the appropriate term for maximum childish-funniness is penis head?

 

In other news, wowzer that Force India looks nice.

That would prove fun listening Martin Brundle, saying the penis head car is coming through the field. It will put a whole new meaning to sticky tires.  :D

I think the VJM07 look quite nice from that angle. It also looks like the rear wing is lower too than it has been for recent years...I like that...I think they look better lower.
