A Brawn 1,2 in Monza

Posted by Ashutosh Tiwari Sunday, September 13, 2009
A surprise, ain't it? The success of Brawn in Monza may seem a surprise to one and all in Monza with great expectations from Luis Hamilton and Kimi Raikonnen but one will accept that there was no answer in the Ferrari or MLaren pitwall to Brawn's one stop strategy that got their cars on top of the podium. It was Rubens Barichello, the most experienced driver in F-1 on the tracks, who managed to stay ahead of his teammate Jenson Button. Lewis Hamilton seemed to have got the better pace of the two Brawn GP cars but was nowhere near the success of their one stop strategy. Instead, when trying to get closer to Button on the ultimate lap of the race to make a move on him, he lost grip and ran straight into the walls at well over a 200km/hr. This allowed Kimi to finish on the podium and gave Adrian Sutil the fourth place on the grid. Had it not been for a small mistake by the Force India team in the pits, who knows Force India would have been on the podium for a second time on the grid. The second Force India car, that of VitNtonio Liuzzi, met with a gearbox failure in the middle of the race and could not see the chequered flag.
