F1 needs to be "fair to all, including Ferrari" Brawn claims

Written by  Mar 05, 2018

Formula 1 managing director of motorsport, Ross Brawn has insisted the future direction of the sport needs to be "fair to all, including Ferrari".

Last year, the chairman at the Scuderia, Sergio Marchionne threatened to pull F1's most famous team off the grid after 2020 after initial engine proposals were put forward.

But it is thought his stance is more general than just engines with owners Liberty Media keen to address financial inequality and level the playing field allowing independent teams a better chance against the manufacturers.

"The sport should be fair to all participants, including Ferrari," Brawn, a former technical chief at the team, told Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.

"I worked for them for 10 years and carry them in my heart still," he added. "Ferrari is an icon and I hope we will find a solution that will work for everyone. A great sport is great for everyone and we do not want Ferrari to leave."

The Briton is leading the way in trying to shape the future of F1, from engines to aerodynamics and more. In 2017, the sport introduced new rules which have created the fastest cars in history but Brawn thinks the speed isn't important if the racing action is poor.

"A MotoGP bike is 30 seconds slower but it still seems incredibly fast," he noted.

"It's more important to have cars that look good and can compete against one another. Does anyone complain that the times are 15 seconds slower when it rains?"
