McLaren F1 new CEO Capito says he will be ‘Boullier’s boss’

A power struggle could be shaping up at McLaren, according to a Spanish sports daily.

After a long wait while he tied up his former role at VW, incoming McLaren chief executive Jost Capito is finally attending grands prix.

“He’s going to start very soon — it’s a question of days,” said team boss Eric Boullier.

Capito is at Spa, but only as an observer in casual clothes. He will be in full McLaren uniform at Monza next weekend.

According to the Spanish daily Marca, Boullier said recently that he, Capito and McLaren supremo Ron Dennis will effectively divide their powers.

“No,” Capito told Marca. “Ron Dennis it the CEO of the group. When Martin Whitmarsh left, he also assumed the same position at McLaren Racing, which is the position I will have.

“As such, I will be Boullier’s boss and Ron will be mine.”
