Brawn set to complete Mercedes sale?

Reports link Mercedes with a total buy-out of the Mercedes GP team
Ross Brawn is set to sell his stake in the Mercedes GP team to the German manufacturer according to reports in the German media.

Brawn saved the team when Honda withdrew from the sport at the end of the 2008 season, with the renamed Brawn GP team going on to secure double championship glory in 2009, with Jenson Button lifting the drivers' title.

Mercedes, who had been engine supplier to Brawn GP, then purchased a majority stake in the team at the end of 2009 and renamed it as Mercedes GP, with Brawn and his partners retaining a 24.9 per cent share in the team.

According to Auto Motor und Sport, Mercedes and Daimler shareholder AABAR is now set to take 100 per cent control of the team before the 2011 season-opener in Bahrain in March.

If such a move took place, Brawn is expected to be kept on an employee of the team.

Your "facts" are interesting. But these are the reasons.... 1) He rejected derisory offers from assett stripping companies, that would have liquidated the entire squad making 500 more people jobless. He also rejected Virgins £20million bid as unacceptable, and he was right as Mercedes paid market value £100m. 2)He took on responsibilty to shepherd the team, Not a bank or a car maker. So He who takes the risk gets the rewards. cont/d... EDIT by CRASH.NET! Inapropriate remark removed.
