Mattiacci would welcome back Brawn

Ferrari boss Marco Mattiacci admitted that Ross Brawn would be welcome back at Scuderia, but conceded that the former Mercedes principal isn't part of their current plans.

Brawn was regarded as the brains behind Ferrari's dominance during the Michael Schumacher era and has been linked with a return to the Maranello outfit ever since resigning from his position as Team Principal of Mercedes last year.

Earlier, Mattiacci confirmed that talks between Ferrari and Brawn had taken place, but the recently appointed Team Principal believes current Technical Director James Allison is the right man to once again make them a winning outfit.

"At the moment I'm building a new team. James is the technical director and I want to start from this point," Mattiacci said during a recent interview with CNN.

"To tango you have to have two. Maybe Ross [Brawn] is happy with what he is doing.

"Ross is an iconic figure at Maranello. Everyone would like to have Ross or would like to see Ross back at Ferrari.

"He's one of the most respected personalities in F1 with the highest knowledge and pedigree. Everybody would be happy with someone like Ross."
