I've just been invited to take part in a conference call later this morning with Dr Dieter Zetsche, the CEO of Daimler which owns Mercedes Benz and Norbert Haug the head of Mercedes Benz motor sport.

The subject of the call is to discuss the future of Mercedes' engagement in Formula 1.

Discussions have been ongoing for Mercedes to buy a controlling interest in Brawn GP and to leave McLaren at the end of the existing contract at the end of 2011.

McLaren has been seeking to extend its engine supply arrangement to the end of 2012, the final year of the current engine formula. In 2013 a whole new engine formula will come in, based on fuel economy.

As Mercedes has been a player in the current driver moves involving Jenson Button Nico Rosberg and Kimi Raikkonen we may get some answers about what line ups they would like to see at Brawn and McLaren.

I will post on this soon after I come off the call.
