In news that sounds far too good to be true, Ross Brawn is set to become the CEO of Formula 1, replacing the long-standing Bernie Ecclestone as the sport’s ring master.

According to multiple sources, Brawn has already signed a deal with new owners Liberty Media to replace Ecclestone, who has been CEO of F1 since seemingly the Jurassic period.

Brawn left F1 at the end of 2013 as Mercedes Team Principal having fallen out with Toto Wolff and Niki Lauda, but with there being regular rumours about his return, this rumour seems to carry more weight than most.

If it is true, Brawn would be reunited with his old Ferrari colleague Jean Todt, who is now of course FIA President.
