DaimlerChrysler to buy McLaren
The McLaren F1 team has really been struggling in the last couple of years; their last championship title was won by Mika Hakkinen in 1999. Norbert Haug, the Mercedes motorsport boss, wants to get the racing team back to the top, and the natural first step would be to replace Ron Dennis, who is the McLaren boss, according to a AutoMotorundSport report.

DaimlerChryler owns 40 percent of the British racing team, but is very close to a deal to take over the remaining shares. Auto-Motor-und-Sport has reported that an agreement has been reached between McLaren boss Ron Dennis and DaimlerChrysler directors Thomas Weber and Bodo Uebber. Either way this turns out, we all just wish that the F1 team will start winning some races and compete against Ferrari and the new favorite- Renault.
