no concern for Ross, he's won everything there is to win, his bank balance is fine, he may even find the time to pursue his other passions (following Manchester United and getting in a spot of fishing), his credentials aren't really in question

I think RB is just being diplomatic and it appears that Lauda and Wolff have a different agenda. RB has failed to get Mercedes to the front on a regular basis despite having two top drivers and a decent budget. Hamilton will have his work cut out to get wins this season but with the new engines for next season and new people in control Mercedes could be the team who benefit most from the new regulations. I think RB will play no part in that having been forced out by Lauda and Wolff. He is 60 or so and will be able to do a bit more fishing which I believe to be his preferred passion.

People have short memories, last year Ross took ill, I can only guess it was linked to the stress of running the team. One of the key reasons Lewis joined was to work under Brawn and I really hope he stays in his role. But when things do improve for the team I think it will be Lauda taking all the credit.

brawns "success" in the past was due to having ...a driver, a designer, a team and himself.

at merc he only had a driver in his twilight years, and himself. no designer of note, no basic mercedes support, so he tended to be exposed. he was a good manager and tactician, but without the proper tools, he was lost. i am surprised that he has lasted this long, given the lack of results, but merc are now taking suitable steps to improve matters. a radio report this morning , stated that brawn was definitely leaving at the end of this season.

@Richard - It's interesting (and possibly Ironic) that you mentioned what ''Chrisitan Horner' was able to do with the Jaguar Team -- as what Christina Horner did with Jaguar is the exact same thing Bobby Rahal TRIED TO DO.. for Jaguar and that is to steal Adrian Newey away from Mclaren -- Rahal promised Ford he could get Newey but Ron Dennis counter offer was enough to make Newey stay so Rahal was fired --when on attempt two.. Newey was finally over Mclaren and came to 'Jaguar' aka Redbull racing in 2005. what Christian Horner 'did' for Jaguar was hire Adrian Newey -- now apparently Paddy Lowe is also over Mclaren but this time the Ron Dennis counter-offer did not work --and Paddy Lowe is following Lewis Hamilton over to Mercedes F1 -- which I'm guessing will become the new Mclaren and Mclaren is getting set up to slip down the order in 2014. Sorry Richard.
