How departing F1 boss Brawn views F1’s new rules - and the future

By:

Multiple-title-winning designer and team boss Ross Brawn is finally leaving Formula 1 after nearly 50 years in motorsport. But he still has plenty of insights on what’s working and what comes next, as he revealed to Motorsport.com in a far-reaching exclusive interview in Abu Dhabi.

“I’m sailing off into the sunset and I’m really pleased – delighted – with where Formula 1 is today.”

Ross Brawn is sitting in his office in Formula 1’s designated hospitality building in the Abu Dhabi paddock. His desk is almost imposingly big, but empty. The room itself is without any fuss. Out of sight, Brawn has placed a present he will later hand to Sebastian Vettel – an unspecified gift he knows the four-time world champion will enjoy, rather than a mere gesture of token farewell.
