Ross Brawn reportedly decides to leave his role as Mercedes team principal at the end of the season after failing to reach an agreement with the Formula 1 outfit.

Ross Brawn has reportedly decided to leave his position as Mercedes team principal when the season comes to a close.

Talks between Brawn and the Formula 1 team have been going on for some time, but the 58-year-old tried to calm talks of an exit earlier this month.

However, Brawn and Mercedes have failed to reach an agreement over a role, resulting in his departure, according to BBC Sport.

Reports have claimed that executive directors Toto Wolff and Paddy Lowe will run the team alongside non-executive chairman Niki Lauda.
