Brawn set to leave Mercedes this week 26 November, 2013 Toto Wolff and Ross Brawn Confirmation of Ross Brawn’s departure from Mercedes is expected in the next few days according to sources in Germany. Sport Bild reckons that the news is coming “later this week”, at the end of a period of strong speculation that the Brackley based team will install Paddy Lowe as the new boss. Mercedes, and particularly chairman Niki Lauda, have made efforts to keep 58-year-old Briton Brawn on board in another role. But the big report is he could be headed back to Ferrari, where as technical director he presided over Michael Schumacher’s ultra-dominant cars of last decade. “Let’s see,” Brawn told the British broadcaster Sky on Sunday in Brazil, after he was spotted meeting in Stefano Domenicali’s Interlagos circuit office. “We will advise everyone in good time, but it’s a pretty exciting year next year, so let’s see what happens,” he added. Asked if Brazil was in fact his ‘goodbye’ to Formula 1 altogether, Brawn smiled as he insisted: “[This is] not an answer.” (GMM) Subbed by AJN.
