From Honda to Brawn GP

The former F1 Honda team now has a new owner in the form of Ross Brawn and it has now been renamed Brawn GP.

So this means that when the first F1 race of 2009 comes to Melbourne there will be ten teams on the grid.

I think its actually good that a new owner has been found because its good to have at least ten cars on the grid as this promotes competition and if some cars retire during the race at least there will be a reasonable number at the end.

The new Brawn GP will keep last season's drivers Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Buttonb which will probably help the team under the new owners because the drivers are familiar with the existing team.

The interesting bit is that the engines will come from Mercedes which probably means that they will have very good engines.

Brawn was formerly at Ferrari as Technical Director and I thought that now that he is in charge he will get the engines from Ferrari but he has instead sourced the engines from Mercedes.

The new season is only three weeks away and its going to be interesting to see how the team will fare but I hope that they will do well.
