Can Brawn GP win it all

button-rubens-head

Two Heads Up: Season opener in Melbourne on Sunday saw an historic one-two finish for team formerly known as Honda F1 Racing. The Brackley based team almost joined the ranks of Lotus, Brabham and Arrows. A last minute management buy-out led by Ross Brawn saved the team from extinction. The dramatic debut win in the Australian Grand Prix is not, in true F1 tradition, without controversy. The Diffuser-gate hearing in April may close the unfair advantage other teams are claiming Brawn GP enjoys in the design of their diffuser.

Jenson Button scored his second career win ahead of teammate Rubens Barrichello, who is now in his 17th. year at the top tier of professional motor racing. Defending world champion Lewis Hamilton was classified third.

The 2009 season is off to a steamy start. More of the same in the simmering heat and humidity in round two this weekend at Sepang–the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Vijay Mallya has his eye on Bruno Senna.

Ferrari may not be competitive until mid season.

Nico Rosberg believes Formula 1’s twilight races are dangerous.

Scuderia Toro Rosso extremely happy with Buemi performance.
