Ron Dennis News


Ron Dennis CBE (born June 1, 1947) is the executive chairman of McLaren Automotive and 15% owner of the McLaren Group. He was also the team principal of McLaren, the group's Formula One team, until 2009.

Since 1981, Dennis had been the team principal of the McLaren Formula One team, and was instrumental in transforming the outfit into a world championship contender. Constructors' and drivers' world championships were won with Niki Lauda, Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, Mika Häkkinen and Lewis Hamilton. Dennis has a "tense" relationship with, and a reported dislike for, FIA president Max Mosley.

In January 2007, Dennis sold half of his 30 per cent shareholding in the McLaren Group to the Bahraini Mumtalakat Holding Company - he now owns a 15 per cent share. Co-owners of the McLaren Group are Mansour Ojjeh's TAG Group (15 per cent), Daimler (40 per cent) and Mumtalakat (which owns a total of 30 per cent).
