Ross Brawn admits growing 'impatience' as 2021 F1 talks continue

Written by  Jan 07, 2019

Formula 1 motorsport director Ross Brawn admits the slow progress of talks regarding 2021 regulations has left him feeling "impatient".

After promising a sweeping overhaul of the sport in two years time, new owners Liberty Media are finding that implementing that wish is much easier said than done against F1's main power players.

Efforts to change the power units have been watered down and attempts to introduce a budget cap are also facing opposition but the former team boss is still happy with what is being discussed.

“I am satisfied with the direction. I am not satisfied with the pace," Brawn told Motorsport.com.

“It’s been a big challenge to move things on, but I know what's going on and I can see what's happening and I know that if we hadn’t started this process, it certainly wouldn’t have got to where we’ve got to today.

“Of course, I'm impatient for more to happen. But it is a necessity to keep the teams involved, to find solutions with them, to work with the FIA and find solutions. So I think it's going in the right direction."

Warnings are growing for some, however, that time is beginning to run out to make some changes for 2021 and the possibility of a delay has also been mentioned.

Even so, in a political environment where self-service is very much the order of the day, Brawn does think this is a key moment for F1.

“I think it is the first time Formula 1 has taken this approach and is looking at how we improve the sport in many areas," he continued.

"We’re only two years into this journey, but I am optimistic that we're going to see in the next few years the benefits of the work we are doing.”
