Me also, never been a fan of Boullier and all for the same reasons mentioned above. Always seemed quite spineless and quick to point the finger.

But then again, part of me wonders what would be better for McLaren... Michael or Boullier. Against my better judgement I'm leaning toward Boullier.

I'm not saying criticizing Boullier is unjustified, but I think anybody who managed such a solid 2010 season after picking up the ashes from Renault's 2009 ought to deserve a little more credit.

His moving to another team could also help open doors for Grosjean in the future, which he's going to need if/when Lotus goes down the drain (there seems to be some kind of looming inevitability to it).

@andrewbensonf1 : A little snippet of extra McLaren news on launch day. Lotus's chief engineer Ciaran Pilbeam (also ex-Red Bull) has left to join them

That sounds alright. A rough grunt, I like it. I think I'll be tuning in to races through radio the way these car designs are shaping up...
