Whitmarsh said 'No' to Manor
Martin Whitmarsh, former McLaren Team principal, said he is not interested to become head of Manor F1 team.
Dave Ryan was named as a new sporting director of Manor F1 Team, but they are still searching for the man who can lead the team in the future. After Alex Wurz also refused possibility to join Manor, Whitmarsh was main favorite as he worked together with Ryan, but he dismissed all speculations.
“I am not interested to become head of Manor F1 team. I had no contacts with the team and if I got an official offer I have certainly refuse it,” said Whitmarsh.
Interestingly, predictions for the 2016 season saying that Manor could become competitive team after securing Mercedes engine and already have team with solid experience, but it looks like nobody wants to take a risk.
