Looking at Brawn to see if they have a podium finish in Shanghai.

As for Mclaren and Hamilton .. it will be interesting if they can pull their socks up and run a decent race. Incredible lying for just one place and lost it all in Melbourne. Hamilton is a great driver so he should be one of the 3 top finishers.

Ferrari...hope they have their chief strategist (Schummi?) sorted out. They should be in the running this race.

More interesting this season so far.

It will be Brawn Mercedes again... with no testing allow between races, i dun know how others are able to continue developement work ? funny how it becomes Brawn Mercedes and not Brawn GP once they started winning...:)

The problem with F1 is once you are behind... its takes a long time, lots of money to catch up, as u improve, others improve as well, u need to improve more than whoever is faster to match them... with no testing allow except during race weekends, how to catch up i do not know ?

Oni 4 teams are using KERS AFAIK... and oni maybe BMW and Renault is doing quite decent...its still not a mature technology yet...and it adds weight to the car...

Brawn started development on this year's car last season since Honda was totally hopeless anyway while others are still developing their cars while the seasons progresses... this give him an early head start already...

he choose not to adopt KERS which i think its pretty smart since u usually get them through external vendors anyway, might as well lets others do all the developement and adopt a proven and mature technology on 2010 when its compuslory...

Hmmm maybe Mercedes now have a good option to get out of partnership with McLaren....the whole integrity thing is a real mess for McLaren. Even if they win they will remain tainted.
