Mercedes GP will decide current driver Michael Schumacher’s future driving seat within the next six weeks. Mercedes has early thinking about the 2013 Formula 1 Merc driving seat.
Talking at the FOTA Fans’ Forum at the Williams factory on Tuesday night, Mercedes team principal Ross Brawn said he expected a decision before the end of the summer break about Schumacher’s future.
“We will make a decision this summer,” said Brawn. “We have not talked in depth about the situation – but we know it is coming and we have to make a decision soon.
“I think it can be driven from many different ways. But this year Michael has driven the best of the three years he has been with us this time, and it has been frustrating when we should have seen better results on track but there have been problems on the car or the way we have dealt with the races.
“I think in the next six weeks or so we will have to think about what we want to do next year – and that is the primary decision. Once that decision is made we will then know if we have to start looking around or stick with the drivers we have.”
