Cool! you have to make sure to hoist the cars up nice and high so photogs can get a shot of the undertrays.

So Brawn has confirmed what the rumours have been suggesting:

I wonder if he'll return to whence he started at Williams after-all?

Further...

"Mercedes will now be run in tandem by their two executive directors, Toto Wolff and Paddy Lowe, along with non-executive chairman Niki Lauda."


That looks like a great way to fu@k up a team - 3 bosses


Oops, I should have read more:

"Wolff, the executive director (business), will now run the political and financial sides of the team, while Lowe, the executive director (technical), will be in charge of the sporting and technical aspects. Wolff is also the director of Mercedes' motorsport operation."


Wonder what Niki will get up to?

No kidding. This is the sort of thing that explains why so many manufacturers struggle in F1. They don't seem to understand racing. Toyota's management style stymied the team despite their money. BMW simply could not get a grasp on how to make a team win. Ford only had brief success with Jackie Stewart.

Renault had great success, but it was the leadership of Flavio Briatore which put them there.

Now Mercedes thinks three heads are better than a proven winner. With Niki Lauda poisoning the punch bowl at every get together, I can see paranoid, tentative management of this team next year. At least Brawn is a rich man after all of this.

ATT-W, I'm sure Brawn would help Williams. But that poor team is so down on funds, I'm not sure how much difference he could make. If he'd joined them a year ago, he'd have had time to sneak in some intelligent choices ahead of next season's formula changes.

it's sometimes easy to put Red Bull's post summer break dominance down to the tire change. But this animation of the aero changes after the summer break shows they weren't sitting on their hands.

Pretty cool stuff from AMuS

I see that Kimi and lotus are parting with a snarl. After being told to "fucking get out of the way" last Sunday, and responding with a "fuck" of his own, Kimi skipped the Thursday media day and showed up a day late for Bahrain.

I would think that if they owe him money PR work is the last thing on his schedule.
