Thursday the new D-Day for McLaren duo?


Thursday 11 December 2014 is apparently the new driver announcement date for McLaren with the team scheduling an “important” media event.

After initially saying they hoped to confirm their 2015 driver line-up at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, McLaren then revealed that they would not make an announcement before 1 December.

The first of December came and went without any word about their drivers for next year and the Woking outfit even suggested there would not be any announcement in the immediate future.

However, McLaren said on Wednesday that they will hold “an important and exclusive” media event at their Woking headquarters at 10am local time on Thursday morning, cue speculation that they will reveal their line-up.

With Fernando Alonso all but confirmed for next year, Jenson Button or Kevin Magnussen will make way for the double World Champion.
