Congratulations to R. Brawn and team for the 1-2, although it was given by S. Vettel and R. Kubica, but that is part of racing, keeping your nose clean until crossing the start-finish line with the checkered flag waving. Nevertheless, congratulations to them! But the 1-2 results will remain provisional till 14 Apr.
I agree with Godzilla Invades that L. Hamilton was not lucky, in fact he drove a very matured race to get to P4. How unlike last year. And to the fact that McLaren is nowhere near the performance of the other teams, at least for now.
If Gunbucker were to insist that Hamilton was a lucky bast@rd, then so are many drivers today. Tell it especially to R. Barichello. He inherited P2. After all the gung ho driving in the first half of the race, where he caused the first incident at Turn 1 right after the start when he tried to muscled his way through after his starting fiasco!
I am very happy... as i won all the bets that i had made. I am lucky...
I decided to bet on Jenson Button & Brawn F1 team in many categories, after looking thru Friday's test sessions & early saturday test sessions, no doubt taking a risk that i might loss all.
But the odds changes, lucky are those that betted early morning Saturday. Afternoon after they finished Qualifying, the odds on Brawn team became very low.
The 2 Toyotas are lucky or were they really good? They started at the back, last 2 of the grid & they finished 3rd &5th. that is very good.
woah when was the last time a new team had a 1-2 finish. 70's maybe.
well done Brawn GP.
Great show by Brawn GP. They really take F1 by storm. Ha ha, now everybody will be looking at them now. Ferrari better buck up fast!
Anyway it is only the 1st race. So...
FORZA FERRARI! WIN THE NEXT RACE!!

Now Vettel will need to take a 10-place grid penalty during the next race in Sepang. In addition, the Red Bull team is fined US50k for driving the damaged car round the track.
Wah the Brawn Supremacy 1-2! Ferrari was in the dumps again. They need to wake up!
