Dennis: I changed my mind
Ron Dennis has admitted that although he was thinking about retirement last season, this year's Championship has resulted in a change of heart.

The McLaren team boss's future has been one of the hot topics of late as the F1 paddock questions whether he'll be retiring at the end of this season. Dennis, though, says he has no plans to do so despite hinting at retirement last year.

"I've already said on the record that at the beginning of 2007 I'd privately decided to step aside at the end of that year, moving to the role of Chairman of the McLaren Group, leaving the role of Chief Executive Officer of the McLaren Group to Martin Whitmarsh, currently Chief Operating Officer of the McLaren Group," he told the official F1 website.

"But, as the great economist John Maynard Keynes once famously said, 'When the situation changes, I change my mind.' Well, the situation did change, so I did change my mind.

"Now, I remain unflinchingly committed to the McLaren Group and the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team, and remain passionately engaged in leading the McLaren Group into exciting new areas of business, exemplified by, but not confined to, the groundbreaking projects currently being evaluated by McLaren Automotive."
