F1 surprise - Brawn could be kicked out of Mercedes

Mercedes want to replace team principal Ross Brawn as part of a restructure aimed at improving the team's performance.
The proposal is to replace Brawn, who masterminded Michael Schumacher's seven world titles at Benetton and Ferrari, with two new appointments.
New executive director Toto Wolff is the first of these and he has agreed a deal to bring in McLaren technical director Paddy Lowe.

And it's not just Ross they want to replace..

The planned restructure would leave no obvious place for Brawn or chief executive officer Nick Fry, the two men who in the winter of 2008/9 saved what has become Mercedes following the withdrawal from Formula 1 of then-owners Honda.

You have to wonder what they're thinking,  but I guess it's no real suprise that once comfortable in their position,  Mercedes want to put people of their own choosing in position.

I don't even think that this is a surprise.
Mercedes haven't been anything like as successful as they were hoping to be, so some chopping and changing shouldn't be that much of a shock.
