Ross Brawn will miss this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix due to illness

Mercedes team principal Ross Brawn will be missing in action from this weekend’s Spanish Grand under doctor’s advice, the team has announced today.

According to the team’s announcement Brawn fell ill with an undisclosed medical condition last week, and has been advised to rest and miss the race at Barcelona, which his team won – under its former Brawn GP guise – in 2009.

“We fully expect Ross to be back in Monaco,” the team’s CEO Nick Fry said.

Brawn’s leadership duties will be overseen by the team’s technical director, Bob Bell, who previously served as Renault’s technical director in 2009 after then-boss Flavio Briatore was ousted following the ‘Crashgate’ affair.
