Thank goodness for the customer Mercedes Benz teams! Jenson Button in his Mercedes powered BrawnGP car wins his third GP of the year. The next MB powered car was Lewis Hamilton in 4th, then Rubens Barrichello in 5th. Other MB powered cars came in 12th, 15th and 16th.

At this point, I have to believe McLaren is re-evaluating what value Kovalainen brings to the team.

HK had a terrible race, but so did BMW, not to mention PM.
Yet NP Jr. did fairly well.

WOW, Jensen is on a roll. This new rule set has certainly leveled the playing field.

He's been very underrated for years. He stuck with Honda when most would have moved on. Good for him.

Now they need to come up with something to improve passing. Hobbs mentioned they're back at square one with the diffusers.
I'm a fan of Brawn and Button, good outcome!

Shame LH couldn't get onto the podium, but still the improvement is welcome.

With three wins already and so many points ahead, the championship is looking like JBs.

After I had two endure watching the previous 2 races on RTL in Germany, to see the race on Speed TV with IMO the best commentators in the business was a welcome relief.
Good race, and congratulations to Button, Vettel, and Trulli.

In regard to the present economic climate, the tire companies which previously competed in Formula 1 must be glad not to be involved anymore.
Unfortunately a exclusive tire supplier leads to teams being forced to use an unsuitable tire, like the hard compound at the Bahrain GP.
