Mark Blundell to expand driver management business 2MB Sports Management. Martin Brundle stepping back from all driver management to focus on his TV career and other opportunities.

From January 2009 Mark Blundell becomes the sole owner of the 2MB Sports Management business established in 2004 with his friend, colleague, and former team mate Martin Brundle. The business, which currently manages Gary Paffett, Mike Conway and Will Stevens, will continue to operate from Mark’s offices in Royston England.

Mark Blundell - "I thank Martin for his invaluable input and I will continue to lean on his vast experience from time to time, but I now have more time to dedicate to the business and look forward to taking on some new drivers alongside an already talented stable of young guys, the company will continue to operate under the name 2MB Sports management and look to build on the foundations already in place.

Martin Brundle - "As I move to the BBC for 2009 and beyond it is the right moment to review my future plans. Given that my new TV colleague David Coulthard, who’s driving contracts I negotiated for 11 seasons, has also retired from the cockpit I have decided to step back from all driver management in order to focus fully on my own career, and that of my son Alex who competes in F2 this year. I still have a desire to drive competitively again if the right opportunities arise, and there are also many personal and family adventures I want to explore. I have enjoyed immensely working closely with Mark and the young drivers, and I wish them all well for the future."
