"He's number one"

I find that very hard to believe,clearly this isn't the case. Too many cooks in the management structure there.

Also I bet he hasn't forgotten how Lauda and Wolff left him pretty exposed at testgate.

I would guess he will leave, probably to Mclaren for 2014, he has a good relationship with Honda and Mclaren and Mclaren clearly need someone who knows what they are doing. Too many top dogs at Mercedes, Brawn has a huge reputation and no doubt ego and I don't think he will stay on at Mercedes to be pushed sideways to accomodate Paddy Lowe and anybody else they take on. It would be a fitting finale to brawn's career if he could get Mclaren back to the top.

Really hope Brawn stay at Merc. He should at least have one year of success with Merc before moving. After the years of building and defending I really think that he deserve a title with Merc and I don't think he like Perez to much. That is the deal breaker so far. Sarcasm.

Very unwise of Mercedes to shunt him about like they have done. If anyone can take them to the top it's Ross Brawn. It would be interesting to see him at McLaren if he does decide to jump ship.

In no way could this years performance improvement be down to Lauda or Lowe's arrival at Merc. It'll take 6 months before they effect some change ( they being Lowe - I see Lauda as being in a sort of controversial press officer role ).
I think RB is in a position to do wtf he wants to be honest, and he'll retain his legacy no matter what happens.
How about he joins Aprilia instead of Gigi?!!!
