Brawn Buys Out Honda And Team Is Saved!

Rumours leaking from the Honda Motor Company in Japan are suggesting that former Honda team principal and Ferrari technical director Ross Brawn has successfully bought out the Honda F1 Team.

Leaks are coming thick and fast from Japan, but no official word has been heard yet and it could be a few days before a statement is released.

Brawn will be joined by an as yet un-named person as part of the buy-out, but it is unlikely to be Brawn’s former protege dirver Michael Schumacher whose boss denied claims of cash injections to the team yesterday.

Jenson Button will be on track next Thursday in a blank 2009 car, and apparantly his job has been saved and he will be the teams #1 driver.  Rubens Barrichello is also rumoured to have kept his race seat for one more season, after Swiss newspaper Blick reported that Bruno Senna has got a seat in DTM “The young Brazilian will drive in the DTM championship (in 2009).”their correspondent said.

The team will be hitting the track for another 2 official tests in Spain, likely with power from Mercedes Benz engines.

The team will have to be renamed, and it could possibly be called “Brackley F1” but that is completely unconfirmed rumour.
