Ross Brawn admits he’s worried that the Mercedes “steamroller” will continue on next season.
“They’ve got a great group of people, but my slight worry is that they will get even stronger now,” he told ESPN.
“They’ve had a change of senior management – Paddy Lowe left and James Allison came – and that was in the middle of a car [regulation] change, which is not easy.
“By their own admission, the car they had this year was a bit of a diva and I strongly suspect that’s not going to be the case next year.
“So I just see – unfortunately in many ways – a continuation of the steamroller. Let’s hope I’m wrong!”
