Ron Dennis’s return to power at McLaren saw Martin Whitmarsh separated from day-to-day control of the F1 team and his position is presently uncertain following the team sign up Eric Boullier from Lotus as Racing Director.
But, Dennis has denied reports of a falling out between him and the man who had been his long-term number two on the pitwall.
“There was no falling out between us whatsoever,” Dennis told Sky sports.
“This is simple, we had to make changes and I wanted to lead the changes because I felt it was the right thing for the group and I was supported in that view by the shareholders, so that is why I am doing it.
“But Martin and I will find a common and positive way forward, and as and when we have that, we will communicate it.”
