Ross Brawn to part company with Mercedes

Swapping Brawn as team principle for a team run by committee is about the worst outcome for next years hopes of winning the WC. Too many fingers never works.
Toto will probably get his wife a race seat next!

I honestly think Paddy Lowe would not be a bad replacement.

It was inevitable.

Too many chiefs, not enough indians.

Very interesting to see what happens now.

....and this is the difference between a car company running an F1 team and a racing company running an F1 team.

MB fans, brace yourselves. It's probably not going to be pretty.

Since then Toto has become my favourite Team Principle.

Don't feel too badly about this. My head was about to pop off when I first heard this. The final straw was hiring Paddy Lowe.

Luckily I have been eating a steady diet of crow on this and I will welcome eating more. The only problem that I have is wondering what will happen if Ferrari and the rest claw back performance relative to the WO7 and strategy becomes important, once again. I am not entirely convinced that the committee approach will work in tight competition.

Cheers-mk
