De Ferran quits Honda

The British press are reporting that Gil De Ferran has quit as Sporting Director of Honda`s F1 team with immediate effect. Never was quite sure what he brought to the team anyhow.

Won`t make them any quicker though. A mess from start to finish this year although I think that Rubens and Jenson deserve a lot of credit for their approach both on and off the track.

IMO, the typical Japanese decision making process, where a bunch of geriatric gentlemen in Japan are taking days to make a decision, and Gil De Ferran were never a good match.
De Ferran's good friend Rubens must ask himself every day, why in the hell he ever left Ferrari.
