''The team is able to respond quickly''
The Brawn GP team's hold on both the drivers' and constructors' championships is strong, yet Team Principal Ross Brawn remains focused on the never-ending work required to keep ahead of the field.
The Briton has carefully looked
over his eponymous team's performance at the Turkish round of the season and feels confident for this upcoming weekend's British Grand Prix at the historic Silverstone circuit.
"Looking back to the last race in Turkey, I was extremely pleased with the performance of the team at Istanbul Park and the way in which we were able to maintain our competitive position," he stated.
Championship leader Jenson Button
has won six of the seven races contested so far this season, while Rubens Barrichello
is aiming at taking place on the top step of the podium as soon as possible.
Brawn seems confident that both his drivers will again have an opportunity to fight at the head of the pack at F1's British round, the last to be presented at the Silverstone track.
"We worked very hard ahead of the race to identify any potential areas of weaknesses versus our competitors and the improvements that we saw over the weekend proved that the team is able to respond quickly and take the necessary steps forward," Brawn reported.
The Brawn GP boss knows that one can never let down the guard when it comes to winning Formula One championships.
"We have been quietly making progress over the past few weeks and have a series of upgrades to come, including new rear and front wings for the race this weekend," he said.
This year's British round will be a special one for the entire Brawn GP outfit, Ross Brawn explained: "The British Grand Prix at Silverstone will be a particularly special weekend for our team this year. Our base in Brackley is just eight miles from the circuit and we are very proud, as a British team, to be going into our home race leading the Constructors' and Drivers' Championships."
"I have been fortunate enough to have been on the winning team at Silverstone in the past and it is an extremely special feeling that I would love to share with this team," he shared. "We are holding a family day at our factory on Sunday for everyone who is not working at the track and it would be fantastic to head back there in the evening with a great result to celebrate what should be a very memorable weekend."
With the Silverstone contract coming to an end, and the uncertainty regarding the readiness of Donington Park to host the race next year, Briton Ross Brawn is thinking of the basics.
"Whilst it is very sad that this may be the last race at Silverstone as it is such a wonderful race track, the most important thing is that we retain the British Grand Prix for the future," Brawn said.
