Good start for Brawn GP

It was a very good start for the Brawn GP team as its drivers Jensen Button and Rubens Barrichello finished first and second respectively in a dramatic race at the Melbourne Australian Grand Prix.

This is a team that looked like disappearing from the grid when Honda decided not to continue with it last year but it has had a very good start but I am keen to see what will happen next week in Malaysia.

The Brawn GP drivers also qualified first and second and whilst it was a normal start for Button it wasn't so for Barrichello who had problems with starting but he fought his way to fourth but the clash between Sebastian Vettel and Robert Kubica gave him second.

I was so surprised to see Vettel and Kubica clash with just three laps to go and all the hard work by the two drivers went up in smoke.

In the race third place went to Toyota's Jarno Trulli but a 25 second penalty meant that he ended up finishing 12th.

So in third place came Lewis Hamilton who had started the race 18th on the grid and this must have been a very good result in the circumstances.

Fourth place went Toyota's Timo Glock and in all I think it was also a good start for Toyota.

Behind Glock was former champion Renault's Fernando Alonso and sixth place went to Toro Rosso-Ferrari's debutant Sebastien Buemi.

The last points place went to Torro Rosso-Ferrari's Sebastien Bourdais and so this meant only two teams Brawn GP and Rosso-Ferrari had both cars collecting points in the race.

I was also impressed with Force India's Adrian Sutil who finished just outside the points places. I am hoping that this season Force India will be able to pick up a few points.

Mark Webber finished 13th and his car was the last in those cars that finished the race. I think he didn't have much of a chance after his clash early in the race.

So the next race in Malaysia next week and I am keen to see whether Brawn GP will continue with its good form.
