Ross Brawn - BRAWNGP - TEAM

For those that haven't followed or don't know much about Ross Brawn he is a man that started at the bottom and worked through the ranks.

He started at March Engineering in 1976 as a milling machine operator, in 78 Frank Williams hired him as a machinist for the newly founded Williams F1. Whilst working for Williams he acquired many more skills working in R&D and working as an aerodynamicist. After a brief stint the Arrows F1 team he went to work with Jaguar (1989) in their sports car racing division helping to produce the 1991 World Sportscar Champion (Jaguar XJR-14)

1991 He turned back to F1 and became technical director of the Benetton team helping them to back to back drivers championships (94 & 95) and constructors championship (95)

1996 Both Ross and Schumacher made the move to Ferrari in 1996 with Ross continuing his role as Technical director. After a few years of rebuilding Ferrari became a dominant force in F1 taking six consecutive constructors championships from 1999 onwards.

2005 was a bad year for Ferrari as they struggled with their Bridgestone tyres.

2006 it was announced that Ross would take a years sabbatical, this however would be the last time Ross would work with Ferrari.

2007 Ross joined Honda as team principle trying to replicate his previous success with Ferrari.

2009 Ross acquired the Honda team in a management buy out forming BRAWNGP

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.
