What impact do you expect Andreas Seidl to have on McLaren now he's come in as team managing director?
Tom Martin, via email
McLaren badly needed someone on the upper management side that has the experience of Andreas. Yes, it's nice to be able to say you have a policy of promoting from within, but when you are in as much trouble as McLaren you can benefit from an outside opinion.
From what I have heard of him, he is good to work with, dedicated, and committed to success. I'm pretty sure that now the Porsche World Endurance Championship LMP1 programme is finished, there will be a few others who might just want to follow him.
