Ross Brawn bids farewell to Formula 1


Among the rumors about the possible departure of Mattia Binotto, the name of a historical figure such as Ross Brawn, who became the technical director of Ferrari during the golden age of Michael Schumacher, appeared as a possible replacement for the Swiss-born engineer. However, a few hours later, Brawn, who is currently acting as a consultant to F1 after five years as the competition’s sporting director, quickly responded through an article written on the official website of Formula 1. Brawn cuts. He didn’t talk directly about Ferrari, but he went further. He considers that at the age of 68 (November 23, 1954, Ashton-under-Lyne, United Kingdom), the time has come to take a definite step to the side and retire completely from Formula 1.

“I stopped wanting to be part of a team. I decided I’d done enough! And this was my only possible appeal. I’m so blessed that Liberty gave me the opportunity and it was a labor of love. Now is the right time for me to retire. We’ve done most of the work and now it’s time to put it together. There will be a new car in 2026 (new engine) but that’s four years away, too far for me, so the next group of people better take up that challenge. I think I’m leaving F1 in a good place.”pointed out Ross Brawn, who is the great leader of the big regulatory change project carried out by F1 and implemented in 2022, with the aim of having bigger matches on the track, something that includes the introduction of the budget ceiling and Others further measures such as the ‘aerodynamic handicap’ sought to ensure that parity in future years was high among more teams.

“I have enjoyed almost every minute of my 46-year career and have been fortunate to work with many great teams, great drivers and great people. I wouldn’t change anything. One certainty is that without the support of my wife and my family I could not do it and I do not want to do it. I will now be watching F1 from the sofa, cheering and cursing as an F1 fan, delighted that the sport is in such a great place and has such a bright future.”said Ross, who was manager of the Brawn GP team in 2009 that dominated that course with Jenson button as a champion.

Ross Brawn already announced a step back from this decision in September, when he said he was leaving his position as F1 technical director to take up a consulting position to spend more time with his family after 5 difficult that year dedicated to changing the fortunes of F1. “I want to significantly reduce my duties, let’s put it this way. I will still be available with my experience, but I will no longer be responsible for one area every day. That means, I will go back to taking care of my children . and more grandchildren, that I will fish more and tend to my garden,” Brawn said in September. And now, two months later, Ross has taken the final step by announcing his final farewell to F1.
