EJ: Lowe to Merc, Brawn and Fry out

EJ: Lowe to Merc, Brawn and Fry out

Eddie Jordan - the man who brought you the Lewis Hamilton to Mercedes scoop last year - is at it again, this time claiming the team are set to replace Ross Brawn as team principal.

Less than a day after the Brackley squad confirmed that former Williams man Toto Wolff has joined them as director of motorsport, Germany's Sport Bild claimed that McLaren technical director Paddy Lowe has followed Hamilton from McLaren to Mercedes.

However, BBC F1 pundit Jordan took it a bit further by revealing that team boss Brawn and chief executive officer Nick Fry - the two men who saved the squad when Honda withdrew from the sport after the 2008 season - are set to be replaced.

"Paddy Lowe is going to Mercedes and it would appear that Brawn and Fry are on their way out, and Lowe will be there in a very senior capacity," Jordan is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"Lowe won't be technical director; he'll be more senior than that. But he won't be called team principal either," Jordan said, "because that will be Wolff. But Lowe will effectively be running the team on a day-to-day basis."

Wolff talked to the media during a teleconference on Tuesday afternoon, but he didn't give too much away saying "he wants Ross Brawn to stay" but he "can't say anything about Paddy Lowe rumour".
