BRAWN DENIES ACCEPTING FORMULA ONE JOB
FORMER Mercedes team principal Ross Brawn has denied accepting a position with Formula One’s new owners Liberty Media to help run the sport. “Liberty have not got far enough down the road to make any commitments yet,” the 61-year-old Briton, who left the sport at the end of 2013 after decades of involvement, told the BBC yesterday. “I’m doing a little consulting to help them better understand F1 but that’s all.” Germany’s Auto Bild had reported this week that Brawn, a former Ferrari technical director who won titles with Michael Schumacher and also with his Brawn GP team in 2009, had agreed a role with Liberty. Other media reports indicated he was set to work as a sporting director, including liaising between the teams and governing body and assisting with plans for the future.
