“Juan Pablo is fully contracted to the end of the year and if we so choose he will test and race again, that is our option and no one else’s,” said McLaren boss Ron Dennis .
“I felt if he was focused on having the best end of season, I thought it would be easier for me to take the decision to keep him in the team, and better for him to get a better offer, so common objective was to get the best out of the season,” he explained.
“Obviously that objective somewhat changed when he decided that in 2007 he was going to race in NASCAR so the objectives became different. The appropriate action was for him to cool off and think about his situation until we have a common objective for the remaining races.”
JPM followers must be quiet excited to hear this. But, even if he did came back, will he have the motivation & willingness to win/complete the race ? When Ron Dennis is himself saying that his objectives has changed, then why keep this usless option open ? Obviously they already have promising drivers [lie De la Rosa & Hamilton] who can aptly takes JPM place in the team.
