Brawn off to McLaren?

Saturday 18-January-2014 07:37

Following Ron Dennis' return to the helm at McLaren, there is speculation that Ross Brawn could soon head to Woking.

The former Mercedes team boss left the Brackley outfit at the end of last season with the intension of doing some fishing.

And there is now speculation that Brawn may yet hook one of the biggest, the McLaren team boss job.

With this week's announcement that Dennis is again in control of the Formula One team, changes are expected at McLaren and one of those is believed to be the exit of current team boss Martin Whitmarsh.

As McLaren failed to secure a single podium result in 2013, Whitmarsh's position is under increasing threat.

And according to Telegraph Sport it could be all be lining up for a major change at the top.

Although the newspaper claimed that "there will be further announcements on the leadership of the team next month, but that no-one has been sacked or made redundant" it is speculating that Brawn could be heading over.

"McLaren did not deny the reports," the newspaper stated, "but said they "would not get involved in commenting on that kind of media speculation"."
