LONDON – On Monday, Ross Brawn, the managing director of Formula One, announced that he would be stepping down from his position at a time when the sport is moving in a new direction and is more powerful than it has ever been.
The 68-year-old Briton, who is widely regarded as one of the most accomplished and respected people in Formula One and whose last race was the season-ending event in Abu Dhabi this month, said that it was time to hand the reins over to others. He is widely regarded as one of the most accomplished and respected people in Formula One.
“During my 46-year career, I’ve enjoyed practically every minute of it, and I’ve had the good fortune to work with a lot of wonderful teams, fantastic drivers, and amazing people,” he said. “I’ve had the opportunity to work with a lot of wonderful teams, fantastic drivers, and amazing people.”
As a Formula One fan, “I shall now watch Formula One from the comfort of my couch, applauding and cursing as an F1 fan, and being glad that the sport is at such a wonderful position and has such a wonderful future.”
During his career, Michael Schumacher won a total of seven world championships, including two with Benetton in the years 1994 and 1995 and then five in a row with Ferrari from the years 2000 to 2004. The spectacled Englishman, who is a rabid follower of Manchester United, was the strategic brain behind all seven of those triumphs. He is also a passionate fan of Manchester United.
Following the conclusion of his contract with Ferrari at the end of 2006, he took some time off to unwind and go fishing in his own time. Near the close of 2007, he made his comeback to the Formula One racing scene by taking over as the captain of the Honda team.
After Honda withdrew from the sport a year later, he bought the team and renamed it Brawn GP after he took ownership of it. After that, it went on to win both global championships in that particular year.
After that, the Briton parted ways with the team and sold it to Mercedes, but he continued to work for the German automobile manufacturer and served as their team principal in 2010, which was the year that Mercedes made their first appearance in the sport as a constructor since 1955.
It was the same year that current seven-time champion Lewis Hamilton entered Formula One to replace Michael Schumacher that he decided to leave the sport in 2013, and it wasn’t until 2017 that he started working in the sport after having previously left it.
“I have the distinct impression that right now is the most appropriate time for me to begin my retirement. He said that the bulk of the work had been finished, and that at this point they were focusing on consolidation.
“There will be a new automobile released in 2026, but that’s four years away, which is rather far away for me, so I think it’s best if the next set of individuals take on that responsibility. There will be a new automobile released in 2026, but that’s four years away, which is rather far away for me. I believe I will be able to walk away from Formula One in a strong position.”
Following Bernie Ecclestone’s removal from his role as the commercial supremo in 2017, Liberty Media acquired control of the sport. According to Brawn, the racing improved after this change in ownership, which occurred in 2017.
The previous year saw the implementation of a cost cap, which was a very significant change. Tracks had also been reevaluated, the governance had been strengthened, and new technical restrictions had been implemented, all of which contributed to the improvement of racing.
“That will be the emphasis in the future – it’s one of the changes to the thinking of F1 that I’m very delighted about,” added Brawn. “It’s one of the changes to the thinking of F1 that I’m very delighted about.” “It’s one of the shifts in mentality that F1 is undergoing that I’m really excited about,” he said.
