Australia 2009 - The race // Can Brawn GP take their front row start and turn it into victory?

Published by Christine

With Brawn locking out the front row, will they be able to turn it into a massive victory and really rub Honda's nose in it? This is the moment we've been waiting for.

Weather update

It's been cool in Melbourne so far, and with the race scheduled to start later than normal, chances are we won't see searing temperatures. Amy gave us a morning update with 14 degrees, heading to a high of 25. Chances are the temperatures will be on the way back down by the time we get to see it.

One to watch

Vettel is going to have to make a really good start, so keep an eye on him going into the first corner. It's his only chance to catch them, as they seem to have the pace. Really, though, the first corner is the one to watch, as it looks like it might be mayhem.

Predictions please

Of course, now it's time to predict the winner, to decide if anyone is going to lose their front wing this weekend (I know I keep going on about it, but I was so sure it was going to happen), and who will be the first to spin off. Also, let's see if we can't predict what's going to happen in that first corner. Could be fun.
