Plenty of F1 speculation comes to nothing, but there are significant rumours swirling around the upper management at Mercedes, with talk that Team Principal Ross Brawn may be replaced and very soon.
Former team owner Eddie Jordan has said that the Mercedes team will poach Paddy Lowe from McLaren, and that he and new Executive Director at Mercedes Toto Wolff will head up the management team. Eddie Jordan has previously been on the money when it comes to Mercedes rumours, confirming Schumacher’s comeback and Hamilton’s shock move.
Meanwhile, Toto Wolff himself held a press conference today, to discuss his own move to Mercedes, and found himself shying away from the speculation. Of Brawn, he said: “Ross is there and Ross is part of the leading team and I hope Ross is going to stay.” He went on to add: “Paddy Lowe is a recognised person in the paddock and he’s been with McLaren for 20 years. I read this story in the paper. That is all I can tell you.”
