Former F1 driver John Watson believes Mercedes are in need of someone of “the quality of Ross Brawn” to handle their current driver issues.
Tensions boiled over at Mercedes last time out in Monaco when Nico Rosberg took pole position in questionable circumstances.
Adding insult to injury, for Lewis Hamilton at least, the German used that pole position to take the victory in Monte Carlo. He also took the lead in the Drivers’ Championship.
The animosity between the two was apparent on the podium and in the post-race comments although that has subsequently been toned down with Hamilton declaring that he has spoken with his team-mate to clear the air.
