Brawn GP is now Mercedes.
Ross Brawn is Team leader.
Drivers Rossberg and poosibly Heidfeld.


With some displeasure, I have informed Brawn GP, to cease further e-mails and remove my address from their lists.... I really don't like the way that Ross Brawn has behaved; he is up there with Frank Williams, in my book! He 'buys' an F1 Team, for a few £s from Honda (who made it easy for him), with cars that are then needed to be modified to take a different engine, wins the Constructors and Drivers Championship and then sells out to Mercedes! Into the bargain, he then treats the WDC with something nearing contempt. Perhaps Herr Brawn should think about working for RBS or any other 'bailed-out' UK Bank, where his personnel skills would be appreciated! Yes, I'm a disgusted ex-Brawn supporter, after years of being a frustrated Honda supporter. Thats not a good mix.

Thanks Norman, but this thread should be closed soon. The 2009 season, as with the year is pretty much done. 2010 thread should be opening in a few days. F1 will have more teams and more changes. The first few races are always good for shaking things out. Hard to wait.

Schumi will drive a Mercedes-Benz, like Alberto Ascari in the Thirties. They were called "silver arrows" while Ferraris are red like Lambrusco. We shall have a great year for racing. My wishes to all, though my heart is to Ferrari, whose plant in Maranello I have visited while working for Alluminio Italia. I had a lunch at "Il cavallino rampante" restaurant, Other customers were Didier Pironi and Gilles Villeneuve.
