McLaren Chairman Ron Dennis believes that when the time comes to pick a successor to Bernie Ecclestone that the individual should come from outside the world of Formula One.
Dennis is not doubt referring to the fact that former Ferrari team principal Jean Todt is the President of the FIA the governing body for the Formula One world championship and speaking to motorsport.com he commented by saying:
I don’t think it is great to see senior members of racing teams cross the line.
Red Bull Racing Team Principal Christian Horner has long been linked with Bernie Ecclestone’s role as commercial rights holder within Formula One.
Dennis who has been with McLaren since 1980 has built the company up from a Formula One team winning championship’s to founding McLaren Automotive the production car arm of the McLaren Group.
When asked if he would consider taking over from Ecclestone, Dennis stated that he would be flattered but that he would decline such an offer as he still wants to do before he retires.
