There have been debates and arguments for and against the recent news that Mercedes is going to increase their stake in McLaren by another 60 percent. So F1Total.com set out to survey a group of people and see what the general publics' reaction is to the news. They surveyed 2,600 people, from which 47.88 percent responded that they didn't want the McLaren name to go away. 23.9 didn't really care if Mercedes took over the entire McLaren team. 19.4 thought that it was a great idea for Mercedes, and 9.18 thought that Mercedes should spend the money somewhere better.
I think that the people have spoken with an overwhelming majority.
