I think that Honda F1 started their development for the 2009 car so early that Brawn GP will not be so far behind. By this I mean they won't be dead last. Especially because they have lost crucial testing time. Maybe faster than STR, FI and Williams?
Where do you guys think they will stand?
Obviously, Brawn GP has stunned the public, with many putting their money on either Jenson or Rubens to win the season opener. I think what many people don't know is that the team that would be Brawn GP continued developing their car from the time Honda's withdrawal was announced. Also, many tests were cancelled or delayed due to the weather. Rain/sandstorms. I think Brawn GP only lost about 5 days maximum to the other teams.
