Ross Brawn says he will take a sabbatical and look at his options next summer once he leaves Mercedes at the end of this year.

Brawn announced he was leaving Mercedes last week and has been linked to several teams, including Ferrari and Williams. However, Brawn says he is in no rush to make a decision and will assess his options next year.

"I've got to take a break for a while, and see how things pan out," he told the Mirror. "I'll take a few months off, perhaps go and see a few more football games. Maybe around the summer time I'll decide what's happening, it's a sabbatical."

Brawn hinted that he was keen to return to F1 but stressed that nothing had been set in stone.

"I think if I get involved again in motorsport it will be Formula One, but I'm very open minded," he added. "I think it depends what motivates me, and what people offer, so we'll see what happens this summer."
