Written By:

The former Mercedes F1 boss has denied having a formal job with the new owners Liberty Media; however, he is interested in running the sporting event if the opportunity was given.

Brawn said that he expected Liberty Media to take its time before finalizing on how the sport's management should change. Liberty Media is in the process of finalizing a $ 4 billion deal to take over the controlling stake in the commercial arm of F1.

On working with Bernie Ecclestone, the current boss of the sport, he said that it will be a interesting combination and it certainly wouldn't be a problem for him.

Brawn wants to support the F1 sport with his consultancy to Liberty and help them understand F1 and the business of F1 and the characteristics of F1. He is not keen on being in charge of a team as it doesn't motivates him.

Brawn's career was most synonymous with Ferrari while working with the legend Michael Schumacher when he won five consecutive drivers' title and six constructors' title.

Later he went on to form his own team, Brawn team, which was later bought by Mercedes and left the team at the end of 2013.
