Far from the madding crowd
McLaren partner Mansour Ojjeh is a very wealthy man. This gives him access to all manner of "toys", not least a 235ft yacht called Kogo, which he keeps in the Mediterranean. This can be very useful to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern living and is just the sort of place where Formula 1 drivers can go to relax and sort out their heads.
It is also a tool that can help racing teams sort out problems. At the moment, so they say, Kogo has Lewis Hamilton aboard as one guest and Fernando Alonso is expected to join the party soon. No doubt the pair will be able to sort out their problems away from prying eyes.
