Formula One is always full of surprises, but the immediate aftermath of this post season has been exhausting. There's been so much speculation and rumours and now a new story has been chucked into life.

Reports emerging are that Ron Dennis is interested in taking over at Manor, after he was ousted at McLaren over the introdcution of new investors, and possibly the build up of a disappointing two seasons.

Dennis is one of the most experienced men on the grid and has overseen so much success at McLaren. With many expecting the Briton to retire completley, new reports are that he is not yet done with F1.

Dennis has a working history with Manor racing director Dave Ryan. Manor are still on the lookout for fresh backers to help them secure their long term commitment to the sport and also see on track improvements in terms of performance.

Some investors such as former Manor sporting director Graeme Lowdon and Indonesian businessman Ricardo Gelael whose Jagonya Ayam (KFC's Indonesian branch) sponsorship has been visible across the junior series, on cars such as his son Sean Galeal and recently promoted Ferrari third driver Antonio Giovinazzi.

  • May be its for the best. He could leave the baggage, and do what is of utmost importance.
