Ross Brawn's book
The book should be an interesting read:

https://www.jamesallenonf1.com/2016/10/r...-mercedes/

I hear what Ross is saying about Wolff/Lauda, but knowing their two different personalities you'd expect nothing else!

They have been remarkably successful and seem still to be getting on, so one wonders if there might be a faint whiff of sour grapes.

What's for certain, though, is that Ross would hate working as a very senior member in such an unstructured team and I suspect his involvement would understandably have destabilised things if he wasn't happy. The outcome is probably best for all concerned thus far.

Regards,
Mark

RE: Ross Brawn's book
I've seen the snippets and as a 100% dyedinthewool Ross Brawn fan I can only think Torger and Nikolaus are stupid to have treated and let him leave like that and lucky to keep it going, despite each other.

I really really don't think Ross does sour grapes. He has 300 million reasons to thank Mercedes coming along when they did.

Heads up: this is almost remaindered already on Amazon UK, and the hardback is cheaper than the paperback:

Just bought mine on Kindle, that will be my Christmas reading when I actually get time to sit down with a book.
