Brawn Applauds Barrichello On “Great Win”
Ross Brawn has heaped praise on his driver Rubens Barrichello after his victory in the European Grand Prix.
The 37 year old Brazilian has been there or thereabouts all season with racing, but today managed to secure his first win for 5 years.
Brawn, his boss, is in discussions with Barrichello about a contract extension for 2010 for the Brazilian.
“It’s just a sensational performance,” Brawn told the BBC. “We have had these races where Rubens was very good in qualifying and it hasn’t quite come together in the race, but today he was perfect.
“He pushed exactly where he needed to, and kept the gaps exactly what he wanted.
“And then when we got on the radio and said we had to push, then the little red lights came up. So it was just a fantastic performance.”
