it appears Brawn was and is kept out of the loop, I fear the writing is on the wall for him, but paddy's input in 2014 is really only going to be felt late in the season and only 2015 will we see his car on the grid i think.

What happen when you have 3 or 4 Alpha male weasels in the hen house? Complete CARNAGE! Ross should be left alone as his is the only one PROVEN to be able to take a team to complete and total domination. Now he has all these interlopers wanting to offer their advice of take his job from him outright. Ross must be outspoken, and not listened to and someone big at Mercedes is looking to get his scalp. Its a big mistake bringing Lowe in who hasn't proven to be good at anything. Toto is a complete unknown that is where he is because of BIG Money. And Lauda because of expliotse back in the 70's and 80's that have nothing to do with RUNNING a racing team.
This all looks like a recepe for disaster. At the least it will probably be Ross' last season putting up with the mismanagemanet of Mercedes.
I'll say it again. "Mercedes is doomed!"

This new situation at Mercedes is similar to McLaren from 2000 to 2005. Too many idiots trying to be "The Big Boss" running around and calling the shots. All the while the one man that could make the difference, Adrian Newey, was put in a back room and told what to do and how to design what, when and how. Ron Dennis was the supremo Alpha male then. Adrian and Dennis' personalities clashed like water and oil. The result was one of the most capable teams floundering and literally falling apart at the seams. Adrian left because of it and the rest is history. Adrian has made his OWN team with Didi M's assistance and now the whole F1 procession is up in arms trying anything to thwart the Red Bull Juggernaut.
Take a lesson from this Mercedes.

I don't know why people are speaking like this. Ross Brawn's position = Team Principal, Paddy Lowe = Technical Director. It is Bob Bell who is in risk of loosing his job if anyone...

Don't be too hard on Mercedes. It's there money and they have a right to spend it on what they think is the best way forward. Ross has had 2 years to deliver and last year failed badly. If he can get 2 or 3 wins this year and look good, he stays, if not, he's out. Mercedes have to plan for the best and the worst - they put up the cash, I hear paddy is doubling his wages (good for him!) so getting people with new ideas in early makes sense

Why are all these dinosaurs coming back to F1? They had there moment in the spot light it's time for the new and improved F1 people to run things. Jeez these dinosaurs remind me the the Republican/GOP party.
