Haug-Tied, Mercedes and Haug part ways

After more than 22 years as Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport, Daimler AG Vice President Norbert Haug will conclude his career at the end of 2012. His contract will come to an end by mutual agreement with the Board of Management. Preparations for the forthcoming season continue as planned.

Norbert Haug has led the Motorsport division of Mercedes-Benz since 1 October 1990. In that time, Mercedes-Benz and its partners won six Formula One world championship titles and took 87 Formula One victories. In the DTM, Mercedes teams won a total of 32 titles under Haug's leadership. Since the first title win in 1992, Mercedes-Benz has won 54% of all DTM races and about 60% of all DTM titles (drivers/manufacturers/teams). During that period of time Mercedes-Benz has competed in 986 races in total (Formula One, Champ Car, GT, Group C, Formula 3) under Haug's leadership and won 439 of them (45.4%).

"Norbert Haug was the face of the Mercedes-Benz Motorsport program for more than 20 years. For me, he put his stamp on a whole era and, as a highlight, he was responsible for the successful comeback of the Silver Arrows to Formula One. In the name of the Board of Management and the whole motorsport family, I would like to thank Norbert for his extraordinary commitment to the three-pointed star," said Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars and CEO of Daimler AG.

"I would like to thank the best car company in the world for more than 22 years, which never had a single moment without passion for me. I particularly wish to thank the Board for the trust and freedom they have always given me with all my activities. Since 1991, we had tremendous achievements and wins, for which I want to thank all of my colleagues. Unfortunately, with one victory in 2012 since founding our own Formula One works team in 2010, we couldn't fulfill our own expectations. However, we have taken the right steps to be successful in the future. Our team and our drivers will do everything to achieve these goals," said Norbert Haug.

Mercedes needs to up the budget for 2013

F1 Teams Budgets for 2012:

Red Bull-Renault = €265m - €380m Adjusted
McLaren-Mercedes = €250m
Scuderia Ferrari = €310m
Mercedes AMG F1 = €200m
Lotus-Renault = €180m - €160m Adjusted
Force India-Mercedes = €125m
Sauber-Ferrari = €85m
Toro Rosso-Ferrari = €115m
Williams-Renault = €115m
Caterham-Renault = €105m
HRT-Cosworth = €50m
Marussia-Cosworth = €70m

All figures rounded to nearest €5m as teams often get money from "hidden benifactors" who dont want to be named. Red Bull adjusted fiugure includes Toro Rossos budget without the backing of the young driver programme as well.

Being the motor sport boss for Mercedes for 20 or so years is a high pressure job with a lot of travel. Imo, he did his job well and appears well liked around the paddock(s).
He will be O.K. and finally able to spend more time with Anne Wis, his life partner for the last few years.

Don't be surprised if the Mercedes team come up trumps next season, with a really competitive car

No trees were harmed creating this message, however some electrons were very inconvenienced.
