    Default Mclaren buy-out the Brawn team

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/moto...ne/8362295.stm

    shame that. button on hamilton (two of the best f1 drivers around now) should be on different teams.

    Thought it was Mercedes who bought them out, Button will supposedly move over to McLaren to join Hamilton which may be quite interesting, the two last world champions racing each other in the same spec'd car

    That is a shame. Two brits on the same team....not really going to be a fair contest now! Who would they prefer as the World Champ?

    I'm hoping that McLaren will have no team instructions apart from don't take each other out. So both drivers will be able to give it their all

    On the news this morning that Brawn could have an all-German line-up and if JB and LH are both at MacLaren it could be interesting. I would not be surprised if Brawn get one over again on the rest with Ross Brawn's know-how. With a name like that that Ross is part German anyway (corruption of 'Braun'?) LOL

    so there's still a brawn team, even though it's been bought out? that's strange...
    haven't heard about what ross brawn plans to do yet, guy makes all the different to these teams.

    edit: ah right yeah - i re-read the article and it's pretty clear there still will be a "Brawn" team - it'll be 75% owned by Mercedes, and part owned by arabians.
