After a few dismal seasons in Formula One, the Honda Motor Company decided to pull out of the sport and sell the team, with the eventual buyers being the management. With testing for the newly restructured Brawn GP team only including 6 days, surprisingly enough that was all the team needed to prepare them for a 1-2 victory at the season opener in Australia the previous weekend.
And in a statement from the Honda Motor Co., Brawn GP is congratulated for their amazing success:
"We are incredibly delighted that our team-mates, with whom we worked until last season, have started from extremely difficult circumstances to earn this victory.
Congratulations to the Brawn GP Formula One team."
