Not only does the dear old Honda team come back as Brawn F1 they will be running Mercedes engines with Button and Barrichello driving.

They will be at the first pre-season test at Barcelona on Monday which I presume means they have to get hold of of a couple of Merc engines and stick them in the car over the weekend !

I wonder whether they get the same engine as McClaren, or last years unit like Ferrari flogs to some teams.

I thought it was the norm to have a 'factory' engine for the main team,and a 'customer' version for others.But with Ross Brawn's undoubted negotiating skills-who knows?

Evidently they did it this morning and whipped it over to Silverstone for a quick test.

They can borrow the engine out of my 230TE, its sorn'd at the moment.

Button already has had a win.

The cars look a whole lot different this year, I thought they were going back to full slicks though.
