Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team Principal, Ross Brawn has expressed hope that the team will turn a significant corner this year and make it to the top step of the podium.  The team which is now almost all German (Brawn is an Englishman), wants to take the fight to the leading pack consisting of Red Bull Racing, McLaren and Ferrari and mix it up with them on equal terms.  Ross Brawn though an engineer, is known to be an astute strategist and it was this ability of his that helped Benetton and Ferrari become winners with Michael Schumacher.  Ross Brawn is now of the opinion that Nico Rosberg is an exceptional talent that is yet to win an F1 race and has expressed hope that this year will provide the team and Rosberg with their first victories after having built on two years of work.
