Ross Brawn has been talking this afternoon. And this is what he has to say about the drivers he has inherited along with his new role at Honda:
“I’ve got a lot of experience with Rubens, he’s a great driver. Given the car, given the support and given the circumstances, he can win races.
“There were several championships which Rubens would have won had Michael not been there.
“I have never worked with Jenson, [but have] always admired him from a distance. He’s always looked very good to me.”
Dearie, dearie me – talk about damning with faint praise. There may be trouble ahead…
