Domenicali open to Brawn return

Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali claims that he would have "no problem" to step aside if Ross Brawn is recruited to replace him.

Brawn's future at Mercedes has been the topic of much discussion recently after the Brackley team stressed that no decision will be taken or announced on their management structure for next season until after the season finale in Brazil this weekend.

The former Ferrari and Benneton mastermind has already been linked with similar roles at McLaren, Honda and Williams, although Domenicali told Sky Sports on Friday that he would be open to a return for Brawn to Ferrari.

Ferrari enjoyed a decade of title success with Brawn working alongside Michael Schumacher from 1997 to 2006, and Domenicali admitted that he would be willing to move into a more overseeing role at the Maranello outfit if a Team Principle of the calibre of Brawn is recruited as his replacement.

"Of course. If I see that is the best solution I will do it even tomorrow, 100 per cent," the Italian said.

"My interest is to make sure that Ferrari will win again because from our side after four years we could have easily been two and two [championships with Red Bull] instead of four-nil, and details made this difference.

"So in a way it's frustrating but in a way it's very motivating because you see that if you put in place the right details then this dream can be back again in our direction.

"Also I have bosses on top of me that may take that decision, it will be no problem because at the end of the day what is the most important thing is that Ferrari has to become once again the standard for Formula 1.

"I have such a respect for Ross, as a friend first of all, and as a professional, but let's wait and see."
