Zetsche to head Mercedes

Dieter Zetsche, the new boss of DaimlerChrysler, will also take charge of the Mercedes car division and thus will be the man overseeing the Formula 1 programme. This is good news for F1 as Zetsche is keen to use sport to promote the company's products. The move is a temporary one while the company considers who is best suited to run the firm in the longer-term.
