Wait, Sam Michael is McLaren's Sporting Director, which he responsible for pitstops? Damn!!!
The second is the pressure Sam Michael, now responsible for the organisation of McLaren pit stops, finds himself under to find an immediate fix if his reputation is not to suffer lasting damage. The Australian certainly cannot be feeling comfortable at present: Williams, the team he left in November from the role of Technical Director at the end of their worst season in F1, are now in revival, while McLaren, the team he has joined as Sporting Director, are suddenly unable to put on a new set of tyres faster than the average back-street dealership.
