Sports Director of the Formula 1 Ross Brawn admitted that would not have been able to work together with Bernie Ecclestone, but conditions in his care he was in front of the new owners Liberty Media did not put.
At the beginning of 2017, the former head of the Mercedes team returned to the championship in the composition of the new leadership of CEO chase Carey and commercial Director Sean Bratches, divide the responsibilities of the resigned Ecclestone.
In one of his interviews 86-year-old Briton said that brown was not ready to take a leadership position in the championship. But Sam Ross denied these words.
“That’s not true. I mean that I did not work with Bernie, but never set such conditions, – quotes the brown AUTOSPORT. – It would be very interesting to work with him, but it was impossible. Bernie did everything in his own way for many years and coped very well.
I’ve never seen with him serious partners – certainly not in terms of doing business. He was helped in some cases. But I’m not sure that my approach would coincide with the approach of Bernie.
He was very skillful in terms of reactive approach. I have the opposite problem: I want to have a long-term plan.
Bernie once said, “don’t plan anything long term, because you don’t know what will happen at that time”.
Brown added that the FOM will work closely with the FIA in the matter of decision making about regulation, but the final responsibility remains on the governing body of Motorsport.
“If we take decisive action, we will do everything possible, – continued. – It does not mean that the previous management was not interested in it, but still, they acted spontaneously.
They came in the crisis period, whereas we want to be part of a continuous process for improvement.
Therefore, we believe that we have a role to play, and we have the right to participate in shaping the rules for the future.
But ultimately it is not our responsibility – this responsibility lies with the FIA as a regulatory body”.
