Formula One News » F1 2013 – Paddy Lowe reports to Ross Brawn says Toto Wolff Posted on 03/07/2013
Paddy Lowe who made an appearance for Mercedes at the 2013 British grand prix as executive technical director reports to Ross Brawn revealed Toto Wolff.
Wolff told the official Formula 1 website “We are moving towards a completely different environment with the 2014 regulations and having lots of intelligent people helps us to concentrate on the 2013 activities and have a firm eye on 2014. Paddy is analysing the situation at the moment. He works for Ross and he is fitting in perfectly.”
“Niki is the chairman of the board, he is a valuable advisor, but his is more of a mentoring role, a strategic advisory role. He is not in the office every day. The actual running of the team is divided between Ross and myself – between the engineering side and the commercial side – and this functions very well. And Paddy is fitting in very well.”
“I think we should all not forget our core skills and competencies – a screwdriver in my hand would do more damage than good to the car and I am not sure that Paddy is so keen on having to make a sponsorship pitch,”
