With Liberty Media’s restructuring of how Formula One is run we’ve seen the departure of Bernie Ecclestone and the incoming Chase Carey take over. Liberty have also confirmed that former team owner Ross Brawn will return to the sport as a managing director focusing on the sporting elements, with former ESPN executive Sean Bratches taking on the same role but for commercial aspects instead.
With this trio at the helm, there’s an air of positivity washing over the sport ahead of the new season. Brawn, who used incredible strategies to take Ferrari and Michael Schumacher to success, managed his eponymous team to a world championship and oversaw the return of Mercedes, says of his new role: “It’s fantastic to be returning to the world of Formula One. I’ve enjoyed consulting with Liberty Media these last few... We have an almost unprecedented opportunity to work together with the teams and promoters for a better F1 for them and, most importantly, for the fans.”
