McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh "is a man under pressure" as his outfit stares another trophy-less season in the face, according to David Coulthard.

Seems very Ron Dennis-ish though...fire a guy for merely being competitive after 2 years of major formula overhauls, while also managing to restore your brand's image after several cheating scandals
I hope this noise is just that: Noise. Whitmarsh seems to be doing a great job at McLaren, and the team has seldom been received better than it has been in the time I've watched F1.

The team will become known as Marussia Virgin Racing, with the company already having been a partner of the team since its launch in 2009.
Virgin says the deal will not result in any significant changes to the its organisational structure.
"Our first year in Formula 1 was always going to be tough - even more so as we were launching in the midst of a worldwide recession," said Virgin chief Richard Branson.
"Virgin is delighted to have secured a partner which shares our vision and spirit for challenging the establishment and we look forward to working together to move the team up the F1 grid."
Graeme Lowdon, CEO of Virgin Racing, said: "This announcement cements our place on the F1 grid and is testimony to the hard work and dedication of every single member of our team."

Lotus Racing will race in a black and gold livery next season as a throwback to the John Player Special Lotuses of the 1970s and 1980s.
The team has sported green and yellow cars this season, but in an attempt to strengthen its links with the original Colin Chapman-owned Team Lotus - for which it has purchased the naming rights - it will change for 2011.
