Brawn for Honda Challenge

Ross Brawn is going to join Honda as team principal after a one-year sabbatical.

I expected Brawn to go back to Ferrari where he had spent ten years before the sabbatical but he thinks Honda will give him more of a challenge compared to Ferrari.

Honda didn't do very well this season with Rubens Barrichello failing to score a single point and Jenson Button scoring just 6 points. So in terms of a challenge there is a really a challenge at Honda.

Compared to the 2006 season, Button got 56 points and Barrichelo got 30 to make a formidable 86 points which earned Honda an impressive fourth place in the constructors title. In that same season Button got his maiden win.

So Brawn will join Honda as Team Principal with full responsibility for designing, manufacturing, engineering and racing Honda’s Formula One car and he will work alongside Nick Fry who will continue as Chief Executive of the team according to Honda website.

Brawn will find a familiar face at Honda in the form of Barrichello. After a disastrous 2007 I think Barrichello will be hoping that Brawn's input will bring a better 2008.
