Ross Brawn has confirmed that returning to Ferrari as team boss in 2008 is 'an option', after ruling out a comeback as technical director.
The Briton is on a sabbatical from Ferrari, after deciding that he needed a break following a decade in charge of Maranello's technical department.
Speaking to German magazine Auto Motor Und Sport, Brawn has said that he will sit down for talks with Ferrari's management this summer to sort out his future.
"Ferrari gave me so much that it is only fair if I speak first with them," said Brawn, who made it clear that he would not return to the team in his former technical director role. "If I return, I need a new challenge."
When asked whether he was interested in taking on the role of team principal, as a possible replacement for Jean Todt, Brawn confirmed: "That is an option for the future."
