    I wonder if the three pointed star will feature a bit more prominently on the Brawn car at the next race?

    I'm so chuffed for the drivers and the team, Brawn really has risen from the ashes of Honda. It's movie script stuff!

    Lewis is up to 3rd according to Sky, Trulli passed him under yellow flags after falling off the track!
    Well done Button & Brawn, and a Mercedes 1-2-3!:rock:

    I can see where you are coming from, and recall Schumacher in 1997 when the Ferrari wasn't as strong as the Williams at the time, but to win a championship you do need both a strong car and driver.

    Well done Brawn and Button.

    The one person who is missing out of F1 this year and personally I think would be a great addition is Bruno Senna.

    Its about time he got a drive.

    Has the result not got to be ratified next month ?

    Something to do with the rear diffuser on the Brawn car ( and Toyota )

    Thats certainly what they were saying at 5am this morning with Button on pole. If the car is deemed to be illegal , he won't have won ?

    And he wasn't driving a Ferrari so that may go against him too

    Since ferrari was not coming in after the brawns and giving FIA relations with third place mclaren, i cannot see them giving lewis the win. maybe a fine and tell the others to shut up?

    Agree with all of you - brilliant win for Brawn GP.

    Great racing, lots of overtaking / overtaking moves etc. Really seemed to be an 'active' race.

    Also - quite brilliant coverage on the BBC - seemed to flow much better, good commentary, good technical coverage, nice balance overall. Well done BBC.

    Did someone mention the Chain......

    The Stewards have deemed the diffusers legal, the other teams are appealing the stewards decision.

    Therefore the cars have driven in a legal state according to the race stewards, a retrospective change in results would be grossly unreasonable and although not impossible, highly unlikely.

    It unusual to have a revered decision once it's passed the stewards.

    Also the fact that three teams seem to have arrived at similar designs in thier own interpretation of the rules is quite supportive. If it were one team it would be more worrying.

    Mr Branson called in yesterday. On his way to the most westerly point in mainland Britain. (You can find that yourselves). Came as a surprise to me as he was in Oz Sunday Morning!

    Can't say he looked too tired either.
