Former Mercedes Team Principal Ross Brawn has confirmed to BBC Sport that he has not accepted any job offer from Formula One’s new American owners Liberty Media.

Brawn, who left Formula One in 2013 has in recent weeks been linked with a role within the FIA or Formula One itself, however the 61 year old has denied this despite confirming recently that he was interested in a return to the sport. The Englishman told the BBC:

Liberty have not got far enough down the road to make any commitments yet,

Brawn has however confirmed to the BBC that he has done some consultancy work with Liberty Media so that the company can get a better understanding of the sport.

Liberty Media have installed Chase Carey as the new Chairman with Bernie Ecclestone remaining on board as chief executive officer of the Formula One Group. So what does the future hold for Brawn? The architect of Ferrari’s dominance of Formula One during the 2000’s says it depends on Bernie Ecclestone’s future plans.
