Ferrari prepared to dig deep to lure Brawn back into F1

Ferrari has set its million-dollar sights on luring Ross Brawn back to formula one. That is the claim on Thursday of the Milan daily Corriere della Sera, reporting that the 59-year-old has been offered EUR 5 million per season if he comes back to the sport with a prominent role at the famous Italian team.

Brawn stepped back from F1 at the end of last season, having led the Mercedes team to the cusp of its current dominance.Before that, he was team boss at Honda, and after the Japanese carmaker withdrew he took over the Brackley outfit and won the 2009 title as 'Brawn GP'. The burly Briton is, however, perhaps best known for being technical director at Ferrari during the ultra-successful Michael Schumacher era until 2006.

Speculation he might abandon retirement with a new prominent role at Maranello surfaced in May, when he was spotted at Ferrari's headquarters. But he insisted he was only there "with a group of friends as part of a tour of Italy -- no more than that!" (GMM)
