Brawn insists he's done with F1

Brawn insists he's done with F1

Ross Brawn won't be heading to McLaren, Lotus or any other F1 team for that matter, insisting he has retired from the sport.

Brawn stepped down from his role as Mercedes team boss at the end of last year and at the time said he would now be focusing on his fishing.

That did little to quash reports that he could be on his way to McLaren to be reunited with Honda in 2015.

Brawn, however, insists that won't happen as he is done with Formula One.

"What they didn't realise when I was invited here was they had a scoop because the world's press was trying to find out if I was retiring or not," Brawn told the Daily Telegraph while at a fishing event in Aberdeenshire.

"This is the busiest time of the year for Formula One and I said I would come along and open the River Dee.

"If they had put two and two together they would have realised I was definitely retiring.

"I'm retiring - it's not tongue in cheek.

"I'm going to take a year to enjoy the fishing and then see what life brings. I'm looking forward to it but I've got no other plans."
