The McLaren Renault Formula One team have denied suggests that former team principal Martin Whitmarsh is returning to the Woking based outfit.

In a statement, McLaren said that Whitmarsh:

What he said was ill-judged and ill-informed in our view but he is entitled to his opinion.

The team also confirmed that Whitmarsh will not be returning to the team in any capacity.

McLaren are in fifth place in the Constructors championship on 40 points and speaking ahead of the French Grand Prix this weekend, Racing Director Eric Boullier said that the team’s main aim for this weekend is to be reliable following a spate of retirements in recent races.
