17th March - Jerez Testing - Brawn GP

Good Morning Brawn GP fans, sorry for the lack of coverage yesterday, but we all need a day off eh? This is the last opportunity for us to put some mileage on the car before Melbourne. We had our first low of the season yesterday when a gearbox let go on Jenson only 12 laps into his test time. Lets remember though that this is our first issue with the car and everyone else has had issues too. At least it happened now and not at Melbourne.

17.00 - Thats it now until Melbourne, we covered a total of 114 laps today with a staggering 1:17.844 lap included. Please keep checking back on the blog for more news throughout the week.

16.43 - Jenson has returned to the pits after doing another 8 consecutive laps all of which were around 1:19.3

15.50 - Looks like Jenson might go out for a longer stint this time and put in some mileage, he's running in the 1.19's

15.13 - Jenson has been practising pit stops with the team over the last few laps

15.02 - Jenson returns to the circuit after the incident with Rosberg has cleared.

13.42 - Jenson has continued to post laps times, nothing over 1,21's he has now completed 75 laps.

11.21 - Jenson completes another 7 laps all in the 1.18's

10.50 - Another quick one: 1:17.844 and into the pits next time around

10.38 - Well Jenson beats Nico to that one entering back to back laps in the 1.17's with a 1:17:979 & 1:17:937

10.23 - Jenson returns to the garage after 5 laps

10.22 - Jenson improves with a 1:18.578 looks like a dogfight between Jens and Nico to get into the 1.17's

10.16 - Not Brawn GP news but Rosberg has just beaten the lap record (I think) with a 1:18.071!

10.18 - Jenson into the 1.18's with a 1:18.709

9.41 - After running a few more 1:19's button returns to the pits

9.36 - He then continues to stamp his authority with a 1:19:611 and 1:19:265.

9.33 - Followed by a 1:19.747

9.30 - Into 1st with a 1:20.905

9.28 - Jenson returns to the circuit after a short absence.

9.10 - Jensons first time of the day - 1:31.1.97

9.04 - Jenson starts his installation laps along with Lewis, The Mclaren is today sporting a rear diffuser painted in green slime (to indicate airflow presumably) Another team for Flavio to moan about at Melbourne then.

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.
