Finally Mercedes has given sings that the success is near. And then suddenly something major is happening behind the scenes. Ferrari "dreamteam", Brawn GP, Benetton, Mercedes. The man that has been crusial part of these dominating forces in F1 is set to leave. The role he was given with to ensure a clean transition for the team clearly wasn´t what Ross was here for."I am trying everything I can to encourage and motivate him to stay. I am the one who asked him to stay," said Lauda."I want him to do it but it is not my decision, it is his decision. If he stays he will be team principal - nothing else - or he will retire."Power balance has broken. Can Mercedes keep on pushing higher. 2013 2nd. 2014?? We´ll see.. Anyways good luck for the future ROSS!!!

Where Lauda is no place for MS, Haug and Ross. That was clear since the begining.

Merc believes in Lauda but I think they should have believed in the real man like Ross.

I wouldn't call it shocking. We all knew about 2 months ago that he was going to be leaving. Hell, it was even running around the rumor mill before the start of last season.

I didn´t know. It was rumoured, but then Ross was announced to stay. Then this..

Anyways to me it was shocking because i think its mainly due to Ross that Merc is 2nd best team now. And we have great drivers. Ok finance. He had made pretty strong team for 2014.

So i fear that the house of cards will fall. That would be shocking. Everything must run smooth to be the best team in F1. Now we have power tripping all over. It cant be good??

Lauda:

"Ross was certainly the mastermind of the whole team - and when he goes fishing the new people have to fill a big hole," he told AUTOSPORT.

"So Paddy and Toto have to do a real good job to continue what Ross has started, especially this year, where he came from with the team being fifth to now second. The air at the top gets thinner and thinner."

Mercedes F1 team boss Toto Wolff admits Ross Brawn will be missed



Mercedes is going to feel the absence of its former team principal Ross Brawn when the Formula 1 season starts, reckons its motorsport chief Toto Wolff.

Brawn has chosen to retire from F1 in the wake of a management reshuffle at Mercedes which ended up with Wolff and Paddy Lowe being made joint executive directors.

Although the team has put a brave face on since Brawn's departure, Wolff reckons that he will be missed most once the stresses of the 2014 campaign begin.

"Of course there is always an impact when somebody like Ross leaves," explained Wolff.

"He was an iconic leader, and we are going to notice that he is missing when it is getting stressful on race weekends. His leadership and his guidance is something that was extraordinary.

"It has been felt that he has gone, but it [Mercedes] is a large organisation with a couple of hundred really good people, and that is why we are trying to saddle it up."

Lowe, who joined from McLaren after being promised a senior team management role, reckoned that the different spheres of influences that he and Wolff have are good for the team.

"I like to paint it more as a partnership and not a division of responsibility," he said. "We work together on most things.

"He happens to specialize more on the commercial side, and myself on the technical side, but between us we're running the team.

"Of course, my background is technical director so that gives me a benefit to understand some of the things they are doing. But my role won't be hugely different to what Ross did the previous few years.

"It's something that is very exciting for me to move forward into, for both next season and the ones beyond."
