Ross Brawn has revealed that he has been offered the opportunity to help shape the rules in Formula One.
Brawn, who has been out of the sport since leaving Mercedes at the end of 2013 has made a series of revelations in a new book, 'Total competition: Lessons in strategy from Formula 1'.
However, he has also said that he won't be taking up the offer because it would be too much of a political role.
"I've been invited to become involved in Formula One again and help perhaps shape the regulations or help shape the future of Formula One," he wrote. "And that invitation is to get involved in the politics of Formula 1, because that is what it's all about."
"If someone said, 'do you want to come back and do a bit of engineering?' I could be tempted," he admitted. "But to have to deal with all the politics of Formula 1, that was probably the side I enjoyed least of what I did."
"And therefore the side that is least attractive to me," he added. "It is probably the arena I am least comfortable with in Formula One."
