Brawn continue domination in Europe

The Brawn GP continued its domination of this year's F1 season with a one two finish in the Spanish Grand Prix at Catalunya.

Jensen Button finished first to get his fourth win in five races and he was closely followed by Rubens Barrichello who at one looked like he was going to win the race.

The Brawn GP team now extends its lead in the constructors' championship to nearly 30 points over second place Red Bull.

It was also a good day for Red Bull with Mark Webber finishing third to cap his second podium finish of the season.

Behind him was Sebastian Vettel who was followed by crowd favourite Fernando Alonso.

Felipe Massa got his first points of the season as he finished and I think he must feel very unlucky to finish sixth especially as he was in fourth position as late as six laps to go.

It was however good to see Ferrari looking competitive again even though Kimi Raikkonen retired just after 17 laps.

The last two points places went to BMW Sauber's Nick Heidfeld and Williams' Nico Rosberg.

I think BMW Sauber are a shadow of the team they were last season when they constantly challenged Ferrari and McLaren.

And talking of McLaren, they failed score any points at Catalunya with defending world champion Lewis Hamilton finished ninth and Heikki Kovalainen retired early in the race.

The next race will be the Monaco Grand Prix and I will not be surprised to see another win from Brawn GP.
