Former Mercedes team principal Ross Brawn has broken his silence on the reason why he left the Brackley based outfit in 2013.
Brawn who sold his team to Mercedes in 2010 says he left the team as he could not trust new arrivals Toto Wolff and Niki Lauda and said that he had people imposed on him like Paddy Lowe who arrived at the team from McLaren.
Speaking in an upcoming book, Brawn commented by saying:
Brawn has never retired to Formula One since leaving Mercedes in 2013 and since then the Brackley based outfit have won the Constructors champion three times and are on course for one of their drivers, either Lewis Hamilton or Nico Rosberg winning the championship.
Hamilton won the championship with Mercedes in 2014 and 2015 and trails Nico Rosberg by 33 points in the race for the championship with just three races remaining this season.
