Team principals praise Ross Brawn’s work with F1

After the announcement, the giveaways. On Monday 28 November, Ross Brawn, technical and sporting director of Formula 1, announced his retirement at the age of 68, after more than 45 seasons spent in the top category of motorsport. A great character in the history of F1 that the team managers have not failed to salute.

Thank you for all your work with Formula 1

The former technical director, who has worked for Benetton, Ferrari, Honda and Mercedes in particular, has received several complimentary messages from friends, starting with McLaren Team Principal Andreas Seidl. “I think we can only thank Ross [Brawn] for everything he has done for us, for the teams and for Formula 1. Not just in the years he has worked for Formula 1, but throughout his career.” The German engineer hails the Briton’s thorough work with F1 and the FIA, particularly on new regulations and the Concorde Accords, and believes Ross Brawn has left the competition “with an excellent basis for the future thanks to all his work”.

Same story from Günther Steiner, director of the Haas team. The Italian highlighted the positive effect of the 2022 regulations as something Brawn can be particularly proud of. “I think that’s the biggest compliment we can pay Ross, because this new regulation was like his baby. commented Günther Steiner. There was when it was necessary to make these things happen for Formula 1. The current success of Formula 1 is also partly due to him. It’s a team effort, but he was an important part of the team, so thanks, Ross, and all the best for the future. »

“We owe a lot to Ross Brawn”

Five years after his arrival as sporting and technical director of Formula 1, Ross Brawn leaves an important legacy. In addition to the new technical regulations launched in 2022, the Briton will also have been one of the architects of the newfound popularity of F1. He was responsible for introducing sprint racing in 2021 and wrote the guidelines for the new engine regulation for 2026.

Otmar Szafnauer, director of the alpine team, also praised the work of the English director. “We owe a lot to Ross and we thank him. He played an important role in the new regulations and I think we have achieved the entertainment value we wanted. I also want to thank him for all the efforts he has put in, whether as a team owner, winning a championship or winning with Ferrari and then using all that experience to help shape Formula 1 in general for the future. I wish him the best in what he does next, whether it’s fishing or whatever he enjoys. »
