Ross Brawns future?

Ok, Ok, it's a slow news week on the motorsport sites, but just chatting with our esteemed moderator Wrex about the future of Ferrari and Ross Brawn once Michael retires.

I was reading an article in F1Racing, which they admitted was unlikely to happen, but were speculating about the possibility of Ross moving back to England and going to McLaren, with Kimi going the other way to Ferrari!

Do you think this is a possibility, do you think he will just retire? or maybe go to another team (other than McLaren)?

Of course, he could always stay at Ferrari, i'm sure they would do all they could to keep him there!

Thoughts anyone?

kartingdad has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Ross phoned me up the other day complaining it was a bit too easy and wanted to get involved in competition again.

Soooo he is moving to Merseyside and run our 95 Swift in the NW series. He's off fine wines and Italian food. He's having pie and chips (with curry sauce) and drinking pints of mild.

And lastly, but don't tell anyone, he has poached the entire Vodafone budget for us as well.

That will be cakes all round then Diz!

I doubt Ross will join another team, but stranger things have happened. I wouldn't be surprised if he decides to retire when Michael does, but of course we don't know when that'll be yet!

Maybe he'll follow Jean Todt... he's just been made Managing Director of Ferrari Cars, i.e. the whole car company, not just the F1 team.

I wouldn't be surprised if he calls it a career after his current Ferrari contract is up. He's got to be around 50-ish and hasn't be missed a race or two over the past couple of years due to poor health?

Personally I just can't imagine him at McLaren and/or working under Ron Dennis and Adrian Newey. But still there is the old saying that there are no common friends in F1, only common interests.

It depends what Ross wants I suppose. Other teams would surely take him and now would be a good opportunity to sign a big money deal for another team. For if nothing else, it would be a nice little nest egg for when he does retire.

I chose retire because he will have to some time, i doubt he will go on for an infinate period of time, but "Stay at Ferrari" also was the same answer, for how long is the important bit.

I can't see Ross Leaving and going to another team. Even McLaren, with all of their money and people handling skills wont be able to get Brawn over there. He has had some health problems of late, so once his Ferrari contract is up, i doubt he will bother to make a fresh start at a new team at his age.

He has a family as well, so i am sure someone who has achieved what he has will only want to settle down and enjoy life.

he's certainly earned the right to be arrogantif you can call him that.

i don't suppose Ferrari will want to see him go when Michael retires. it'd be better for continuity if he stays a for another season or 2.

in any case, with the new changes, F1 will be but a shadow of what it is now, maybe it would be better if he does call it quits and let some snotty faced kid take over glorified Karting1.

Absolute bs!

Of course, I wholly support your right to express that opinion...!

For those who don't have a dictionary handy, arrogance is to believe one is superior without real justification. In Ferrari's (and Ross's) case, they really are superior, so arrogant he is not...

The only reason i can see him moving is if he is bored of being at Ferrari and winning so easy and wants to test his fighting skills again by going to a rich struggling team... i.e Mclaren...

i have a feeling though that he might stay atleast till MS's retirement...

I think he will move team and to a British one. I can't see him calling it a day as I think he's got years left in him. As an engineer, he will fancy a new challenge and his family, supposedly, would love to go back to Britain: so why not move to McLaren or Jaguar or something?

The promotion Todt got to general director at Ferrari, will disclose new upgrading chances for many who currently hold lower positions, Ross at first.
If he stays, he can get Jean's current job, and that's a very attracting opportunity IMO.

RB did say he wanted to work for Jaguar Racing in the future, that was only last year he said that too. He worked for Jaguar in sportscars, and would help build the F1 team up too. I would think that would happen after MS has retired, if JR are still in F1, of course...
