    assuming its all true, then its an unbelieveably good deal for McLaren - Free engines for 6 years, the last 2 world champions as their drivers, and they get to own all of themselves again!

    As for Brawn GP, Its great that it means that the team will stay there, but its a shame that they are not gonna stay as an independent. I really dont think they will be able to compete with McLaren with the driver lineup they are proposing, much as I rate Rosberg, he isnt as good as Lewis or Jenson

    Cool shot Damian!

    Surely Brawn cant possibly win the title in 2010?

    Rumour goes that Jenson "Will " get that drive with Mclaren and as they want a German driver at Mercedes that Heidfeld will take Jensons place at ( former ) Brawn GP.
    It`s just a mather off:clock2: before they will announce it.

    I'm really pleased for Brawn they have been on a roller coaster of a ride for the last year and now they have some security.
