Brawn: Not going to quit until Merc ‘is successful’, plus other ‘news’



All of you who thought the Alonso-Vettel-Ferrari fear story wasn’t news, you might want to consider averting your eyes.

OK. You were warned.

The British press has condensed what I believe to be an interesting interview with Ross Brawn down to one constitutive part: his denying any rumors that he will quit as Mercedes team principal.

Yep, because that’s the biggest issue hanging over that team right now.

Here’s the link to the German language story from Auto Motor Und Sport. I just don’t have the heart to Google translate it, but there’s a lot on Schumacher — qualifying and tire grid troubles — and he talks about Nico Rosberg and the 2009 season.

If only we had a fluent German speaker on staff to help us all out!

But I won’t leave you all hanging with just that rumor/news. Other items on this last day of 2010:

  • Paul di Resta is still waiting desperately for news of the Force India seat. Can you believe that’s the remaining prize on the Formula 1 grid?
  • Ferrari’s 2011 design apparently has passed the first crash test, but not without some cracks. Supposedly it is quite different from the 2010 model. No word on whether it is only Fernando Alonso’s that’s lots different, though.
  • Pirelli is going to do wet-weather testing at night at Abu Dhabi. (No one tell them that’s in the desert. This could be hi-larious!)
  • Jenson Button has been in Hawaii after first being in Australia, where he did a triathlon, of course. Given his girlfriend, I think those are smart holiday destinations. Do you want her in a bikini or overcoat?

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the slow fade-out on 2010.
