    Mark Webber has finally won a race, but I was hoping the Brawns would come out on top. :(

    For the record, as much as I like Ross Brawn, I'm not a fan of Barrichello though, can't believe what he said after the race, I hope they will replace him next year. Brawn, please call Bruno Senna!

    Yeah, they're currently 4th in constructor, and McLaren is even worse, 6th.

    It's a good thing to see private teams doing well, this is why I want to see Brawn to win the championship even though I like Ferrari.

    Yeah, but now both Macs and Ferrari have new front spoilers and double decker diffusers. Brawn does not have the clear advantage anymore and will need to fend off more challengers than just RB.

    I like to see RB will because of Adrian Newey. AN+Renault Power=Championship Car it can a make mediocre MW a GP winner. F1 is always more car than driver.

    Ferrari nor McLaren is in Brawn's concern, at least for the time being, because the closest Ferrari (Massa) is still 46 pts behind Button with 8 races to go. Even with the new aero package, they're still not consistent enough to make up 46 pts in 8 races, unless Button keeps on getting DNFs. For McLaren, it's pretty much too late, Hamilton is now 59 pts behind. RBR on the other hand is much closer, with only 21 (Vettel) and 22.5 (Webber) pts differences.

    No, Ferrari and Mac can take points away from Brawn. As clearly RB is now ahead of Brawn and they are in catch up mode but Ferrari and Mac took points away from Brawn in German GP. If this trend continues Brawn can not hold their lead.
