Dream start or what

Jenson Button

Now this is what you call a DREAM START – not only for the 2009 F1 season but also for Brawn-Mercedes who put up a remarkable show at the Australian Grand Pix by grabbing the top two spot and taking home the maximum number of points (i.e. 18) on the offer and that too in their very first race. And trust me this is not a common site – the last time it happened was in 1954 at the French Grand Prix when Mercedes-Benz was the all out winner. Apart from the dream start that the team enjoyed, it was kind of a comeback for the two drivers – Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello. For Button, it was the second win of his career after nearly three years and for Barrichello the race showed some glimpse of his career at Ferrari where he was more often than not at the second spot. Prior to this, both the drivers had a diffcult time with the Honda team and their future was under severe doubt when the Honda team had decided to pull out of Formula 1 due to the recession hit. But thanks to the last minute takeover deal, the team and the drivers are now part of the 2009 season and rearing to go. Lets see whats on the offer.
