Published by Christine

Brawn GP have certainly made their mark on the start of the season. From a future that looked uncertain, they dominated the field today and took their first win at their first race. Lewis Hamilton recovered from a difficult qualifying to score a podium finish. Meanwhile, both the Ferrari drivers retired towards the end of the race, with Felipe Massa pulling off track and Kimi Räikkönen crashing into the wall.
