What did you think? I thought the racing was awesome even if the cars are ugly.

Who is your pick?

I say Hamilton or Vettle but the Brawn team seems to have thing figured out early.

Ferrari ? What happens to these guys first race of every year?

i've been a button fan forever, so it was great to see him finally in a good car! i assume the other teams will get their rear end (literally) up to speed soon and brawn will not walk away with it. although it's good to see ross brawn continue to succeed! can't wait 'til 2010 when the US team shows up. hope they stick around long enough for angus to test with them.

Kubica had it, no KERS, no new diffuser and he was finishing second !

The front wings make the cars look like a bulldozer.

The back wings.. well.. they just look wrong.

But, you can't argue with the end result. When what the last time you saw a F1 car draft up and pass? I honestly can't remember the last time I saw it.

It's also nice to see Brawn step out of Schumaker's shadow. The guy clearly has it together.

I only wish we still had the USGP. I had the best seats you could have for that race, top row right at the entrance to Turn 1.

The changes made for more exciting racing. Agree with everyone, the cars are ugly.

I am stoked to see Brawn GP kick butt. In your face. Got to love it. Now the big boys have to get to work to get fast. Hopefully they won't wine too much about the diffuser at the hearing. It appears that the guys that opened up the diffuser had the advantage and it was within the rules.

True, but I don't think Brawn got a lot of money until Virgin came on board.

Don't care how the cars look. I think it will grow on you. Looks like it make for some good racing. Barichello (don't know if spelling is correct) looked tough and his car defiently was tough. Liked different names on top instead of the usual. Kubica will be tough. Looks like Hamilton has his work cut out for him.

F1 looks like could become more NASCAR like. Actual passing.

cant be too agressive in f1 though. a small bump could turn into massive damage. nascar is just more stable and you can lay into someone more. if f1 could improve the stability of the car then it would provide for some rubbing. i think it was the indy race last year, when patrick ran into someone on pit road and it tore the whole wheel off both of em.

That is what I am talking about - Richard Branson = the money part of the equation and when the money guy hates to loose as much as the driver and tuner you have a winning team.

I like NASCAR but there is no comparison it is apples and oranges.
