The man behind the success of Benetton, Ferrari and Brawn GP in recent F1 history is driving away from the sport. Ross Brawn is leaving the world of Formula 1 as one of its most successful team principals. He was responsible for the rise of the great Michael Schumacher in Benetton then to Ferrari where the team was basically untouchable in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. After departing the Scuderia, he went on to manage the 2008 Honda F1 team. Though unsuccessful, he managed to transform the team, eventually lending his last name for the squad and netting the 2009 Driver’s Championship to Jenson Button. Mercedes GP was the last stop for Brawn in Formula One, where he was also reunited with Schumi.
