Formula One: Mercedes drivers want Brawn to stay as team principal
SUZUKA, Japan (REUTERS) - Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg hope Mercedes principal Ross Brawn will stay with their Formula One team next season despite media speculation that the Briton could be headed elsewhere.
"The Internet is just rumours but for sure there are discussions ongoing, Ross has said, with the team," German driver Rosberg, winner in Monaco and Britain this year, told reporters at the Japanese Grand Prix.
"For me, it would be great if he stays because I get on well with him and I think he's a great team principal.
"At the same time I have confidence in the team leadership's ability to make sure we have a solid future whatever his decision is because we have a lot of great strength in the team now as it is."
