Hamilton eager to work with Brawn

24 January 2013 16:01

New Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has expressed his relief that Ross Brawn will remain as team principal at the German Formula One outfit.

Brawn dismissed speculation on Thursday that he will leave Mercedes with McLaren's Paddy Lowe to take over as team principal.

Hamilton believes Brawn is the type of leader who 'inspires everyone' and the ex-McLaren driver is looking forward to developing his relationship with the 58-year-old as they attempt to win Mercedes' first drivers' championship since 1955.

"Like in any team, it's important to have that head figure who leads the way and inspires everyone to go that extra distance," Hamilton said.

"I've been reassured by Ross that his commitment is for the long-term and he's here to try and win with me.

"That reassures me and continues to give me a positive feeling going forward."

While Hamilton was keen to point out he has no problems with Lowe, who he worked with at McLaren, the 28-year-old made it clear he was looking forward to working with Brawn.

"We have a good relationship already, me and Ross, and we generally have had a respectable relationship for some time now," Hamilton said.

"And obviously towards the end of last year and over the last few months we have built up a good, open relationship."
