Mercedes is HQ'd in Brackley. One hopes Lauda feels differently about working with Englishmen now, than he did when Jag fired him.

"But what you've got to know is that in England things work differently. Britons do have their unique way of solving problems. They saw away at the legs of a chair - nobody talks about anything because they of course all stick together until they get what they want.

"I was always aware that that's how it works and now it's happened. I am neither an engineer nor an Englishman and that's why it's easy for me to accept being replaced. I've now got to consider whether to accept their offer of continuing to work for Ford."
