AdrianM should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Sounds like he's going to work at a team and the FIA didn't want him giving that team any advantages with the directions that would be discussed at meetings.

I fully expect he will be replaced so I doubt it will make any difference to where F1 is going.

If he was going to a rival team, I would think that 3 months gardening leave wasn't anywhere near long enough. Needs to be more like 15 months.

Agree regarding nothing changing in how the sport works.

Yes, three months seems extremely short. While his background is in aero, he was the head of that department, so I assume his current knowledge of what ALL teams is doing is extensive. Should we place bets as to where he ends up?

That's fine, it may quit halfway through the event and then we'll have a cheesed off Spaniard stomping through camp and sitting in our chairs.

And before anyone gets extra angry, I do NOT have anything against McLaren at all. Just me being a smart ass

I can see why other teams aren't happy, he's got too much info on other teams, which means Reanult will know everything
