Formula One News » F1 2013 – Brawn denies Ferrari return Posted on 12/08/2013
Ross Brawn has spoken to La Gazzetta dello Sport and denied any speculation he is set to return to Ferrari if Paddy Lowe takes the reigns at Mercedes.
“Firstly, I have never discussed the possibility of a return to Ferrari, I had wonderful moments at Maranello and I love Italy so much now that in the next week I’ll be in Forte dei Marmi.”
“But I am happy to be with Mercedes and I have to say that we have done a good job, the arrival of Paddy Lowe doesn’t change the situation, as I have a different role in the team.”
“But one of the secrets of success in motor sport is stability: we at Mercedes are competitive again thanks to a job that started 18 months ago.”
“It is important to prepare well for 2014, but if we have the opportunity to fight for this 2013 title, then why not try it?
“However, it is quite difficult, Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull are very consistent, they’re hardly going to commit serious mistakes.”
“All I’ll say is that we won in Hungary with tyres that we had never used before, as we couldn’t do the Silverstone test. But I know what an enthusiast Luca is, so I understand his outburst.”
