If you ever worked with Japanese Companies, you are familiar with the failings of decision making by committee.
A bunch of old guys at HQ in Japan mulling over the smallest issues at nauseum.
Even their European heads of operation have limited authority when it comes to decision making.
Toyota suffers from this to a lesser extent. Their F-1 team is based in Europe.
BTW, Dave Richards group recently acquired control of Aston Martin.
