Northamptonshire-based Formula One team Mercedes have announced that Team Principal Ross Brawn is to step down.
As we reported last month, speculation had been mounting that Brawn was considering his position and it's now been revealed that he will leave at the end of the year.
Executive directors Toto Wolff and Paddy Lowe will now lead the team heading into the 2014 season, with Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg confirmed as the team's drivers.
Speaking to the team's official website, Brawn said that the time was right to call time on his association with Mercedes:
"The most important consideration in my decision to step down from the role as Team Principal was to ensure that the timing was right for the team in order to ensure its future success.
"The succession planning process that we have implemented during this year means we are now ready to conduct the transition from my current responsibilities to a new leadership team composed of Toto (Wolff) and Paddy (Lowe).
“Mercedes-Benz has invested significantly in both the personnel and infrastructure at Brackley and Brixworth.
"Thanks to the one-team approach we have implemented between the two facilities, the team is uniquely positioned to succeed in 2014 and I am proud to have helped lay the foundations for that success."

England have been dealt a another blow with the news that batsman Jonathan Trott is heading home from the tour with a stress-related illness.
Trott's return means that England, captained by Essex star Alastair Cook, will have to make at least one change before battle resumes in Adelaide next week.
England go into the 2nd test on the back of a heavy defeat in Brisbane, as Australia cruised to a 381 run win with a day to spare.
Cook himself battled hard to make 65 as England were bowled out for 179 in their second innings, but his individual effort was a small highlight in an otherwise disastrous start to the Ashes series.
Meanwhile, Northamptonshire all-rounder David Willey is also returning home early from Australia after picking up a lower back injury.
