Brawn spotted in Maranello
Few journalists in Formula 1 have the real inside line with all news related to Ferrari like Leo Turrini and therefore when he reports of a Ross Brawn spotting in the area then it is time to sit up and take notice.
Turrini reports that Brawn, who was part of the Ferrari wonder years, was at Maranello – Fiorano to be precise – on Monday.
In his typical humour packed style Turrini speculated that Brawn was in town because:
He picked up some boxes of bananas from a grocer who he frequented regularly between 1997 and 2006;
He had an unsettled bill at Pancani’s gas station which he had decided to settle;
He was in town to hand pick and buy a brand new Ferrari with all the millions he has earned;
New Ferrari Formula 1 race director Marco Mattiacci is a very intelligent person and possibly very convincing…
There has been much speculation regarding Brawn’s plans in the aftermath of his departure from Mercedes, with reports linking him not only to Ferrari but also to a top spot at McLaren. (GP247)
