The duo are together again at Mercedes, but Briton Brawn admitted that in these days as team principal, he is no longer steering the actual race strategies during Grands Prix.

That role, he said, is occupied by James Vowles, a 32-year-old Briton.

"We have a very good guy for the strategies," Brawn told Finnish broadcaster MTV3, "but he presents his ideas to me to hear what I think of them.

"Sometimes with my experience I am able to give a different view of things, but James is very good and I need to intervene very rarely," Brawn revealed.
