Ross Brawn looks set to stay on as Mercedes team principal next season with the Briton admitting he is already looking forward to 2014.
The 58-year-old's future at Mercedes has been questioned on numerous occasions this year following the arrivals of Toto Wolff as head of motorsport and Paddy Lowe as a technical director at Brackley.
There were fears that it would be a case of "too many cooks, spoil the broth", but Mercedes have instead gone from strength to strength so far this season.
Brawn himself admits he is already excited about the 2014 challenge.
"We're in good shape for next year. I wouldn't want to miss the fun," he is quoted as saying by The Telegraph. "This is a big regulation change - and the full package of the car; not just aerodynamics like we've had before."
Meanwhile Wolff says there will be no timescale for a Brawn-Lowe transition, he is quoted as saying by Autosport: "There is no transition, yet. He [Ross] is the boss.
"He decides about any transition and this is something we will be discussed at a later stage.
"But it is not on our agenda at the moment."
Lowe was initially only expected to join Mercedes from McLaren later in the year, but his former employees at Woking decided to release him early, something which has been welcomed by Brawn.
"It was a bonus getting Paddy so early, we didn't expect it," he said.
"What we have agreed is for him to spend the rest of this year looking at how we are operating, perhaps where we are at a good level and where we can improve from his experience.
"Paddy is a quite constructive guy and that is proving useful."
