Brawn GP dominate in Monza
Rubens won the Italian Grand Prix in Monza on Sunday for his second victory of the season and the eleventh Formula One win of his career. Jenson came home in second position to complete a fantastic weekend for the team which takes our victory tally to eight races with four one-two finishes this season.
After the race, Rubens said: "Monza has always been a great track for me and it feels just wonderful to win here again. We made some great decisions this weekend and the work that we achieved on Friday was the key to setting up the result today. I’m driving a fantastic car with a fantastic Mercedes-Benz engine and the team is doing a fantastic job! It’s going to be a good and healthy fight for the championship over the next few races and I’m really looking forward to that."
Jenson was delighted to be back on the podium: "I had a really good race today. The team and Rubens did a great job this weekend and congratulations to Rubens for his second win of the season. The car worked very well and the balance was good throughout the race which meant I could set consistently quick lap times when it mattered. We have shown that the Brawn-Mercedes is a very good car and credit to the team for the efforts that have gone into improving it over the past couple of months. It’s going to be a very exciting end of the season and a challenge that we are all looking forward to."
