The last week of March the beginning of the Formula 1 season, a new set of rules and regulations and yes a new set of wheels to go crazy on the podium, Brawn-GP had a 1-2 finish and made Ross Brawn a very proud man and gave Jenson Button his first win in 3 years. With a win in the rain shortened race in Malaysia earned Button a win and Brawn-GP became the first constructor since 1950 (Alfa Romeo) to win their first 2 Gran Prix races.
