Mercedes failure Brawn's fault, not Haug's says Stuck - Mercedes should not pin its failure to succeed as a Formula One works team on departing motor sport president Norbert Haug, according to Hans-Joachim Stuck.

After 22 years in the role, spanning the famous German marque's entire Grand Prix involvement in the modern era, Haug has resigned.

Niki Lauda, who arrived at Mercedes recently as non-executive chairman, said on Sunday that Haug resigned as a result of the team's failure to succeed since taking over Brawn in 2010.

But Stuck, the president of Germany's motor sport federation, defended Haug by saying: "The failures in Formula One are solely attributable to Ross Brawn.

"The car was just not fast enough," he told the Focus news magazine in its Monday edition.

"He (Haug) was not the one who designed that car. He was the one who, after all those decades, made motor sport acceptable to Mercedes once again."
