Mar.11 (GMM) Mere days before the new season kicks off, McLaren boss Ron Dennis appears no closer to stepping down.
It is now widely agreed in motor racing circles that the 60-year-old veteran's days as the Mercedes-powered team's principal are numbered.But Dennis insists that the decision to stop and hand over to his deputy Martin Whitmarsh will be his alone."I'm not sure when that will be," the Briton told the Independent newspaper this week.Dennis is due to arrive in Australia for the 2008 season opener on Thursday or Friday, but it is clear that he will not be making too many more trips to grand prix circuits as team boss."There are things I have to sort out in my life and I am in the process of doing that. I am 60 years old, and there are many other things I want to do outside formula one," he added.
