Whitmarsh officially leaves McLaren
26 August 2014 – Martin Whitmarsh has now officially left McLaren, it has been confirmed, with both "agreeing amicably to part company."
Whitmarsh was ousted as Team Principal and CEO at the start of the year, with Ron Dennis reappointed as CEO of the Group as part of a major restructuring process, which saw Eric Boullier take on the role of Racing Director.
Speaking back in March, Dennis refused to discuss Whitmarsh's future, but now a settlement has been agreed.
"McLaren and Martin Whitmarsh have agreed amicably to part company," a McLaren spokesman told GPUpdate.net.
Details of the settlement have not been disclosed.
Whitmarsh had been at McLaren for over 20 years and was appointed Team Principal of the Formula 1 team in 2009, but last season was disastrous and for the first time since 1980 the Woking squad failed to notch up a single podium finish.
