Ross Brawn: 'Simplicity is the future of Formula One'

Bernie Ecclestone's 40-year reign as the head of Formula One is over. The sport's been sold to a company called Liberty Media for almost £6.5 billion.

Former Mercedes F1 Manager Ross Brawn returns to Formula 1 as Managing Director, and he's been outlining his plans for the sport to 5 live Breakfast.

He says: "I've watched Formula One for the past few years - there's been times when even I haven't been sure what's been going on."

“Fans want overtaking, close-racing, and to know what’s going on,” he added.
