15th March - Jerez Testing - Brawn GP

Good morning Brawn GP Fans, today the team is at Jerez focusing on the last few days of testing before all the teams converge on Melbourne.

New livery has appeared on the rear section of the car, not sponsorship but the logo.

Rumour around the paddock is that Fernando's Renault had a suspension failure

Don't be scared to let us know what your thinking and post on the blog!

About Me

I have been an F1 fan from a very early age, however in my very early years I didn't really support a team just loved the racing. Since the BAR years I have been supporting this team through it's highs and lows. I'm confident under Ross Brawn's control the team will go from strength to strength and hopefully Jenson and Rubens can find themselves in a competitive car once more.
