Ross Brawn is said to indulge in fishing.

8 world championship titles, 7 of which came from Michael Schumacher, with Jenson Button contributing the other. Not many can boast such a record in Formula One, but Ross Brawn can.

The 59 year old announced that he will be retiring with immediate effect, intending to spend the next year fishing. After fishing, who knows? But Brawn is definitely not coming back to F1. Brawn’s F1 career began in 1978 with the then newly-formed Williams F1 team. In 1991, Brawn joined Benetton where he served as team technical director. It was also where he helped Michael Schumacher win the world driver’s championship in 1994 and 1995.

In 1997, Brawn joined Ferrari with Schumacher, bringing in great success to the Italian racing team. Brawn stayed on until 2006, where he left for Honda, before forming his own team and winning the championship in 2009 after the Japanese manufacturer pulled out from the sport. From 2010 to 2013, he was the team principal for Mercedes.

About Jack Lee

Jack Lee is an unqualified petrol head (some say, to be one, you have to own an Alfa Romeo) who is disappointed with cars which are getting more and more electronics and the lack of interest in cars shown by today's youths in general. He owns an almost 20 year car from Germany, which has almost 50:50 weight distribution, 3 pedals (manual, FTW!) and believes that everyone should spin at the last corner of Sepang circuit at least once in their life. He also holds the distinction in TCG as the person with the lightest right foot, of course, when compared with his colleagues' mutated cast iron right foot.
