11Aldo Costa joins Brawn and Schumacher at Mercedes GP

Back in the day, one team dominated Formula One like no other before it and none since. Michael Schumacher was driving, Ross Brawn was running the team and Aldo Costa was designing the cars. It was a winning combination, to say the least, one that yielded seven world championships. That was at Scuderia Ferrari. And now the three are together again at Mercedes GP.

10Brawn warns Mercedes not to supply more teams with engines

With a rapidly expanding grid and only four engine suppliers left in the series, the burden on each is getting mighty heavy. Renault only supplies its own team and Red Bull, but four teams are running under Cosworth power, three under Ferrari and another three run Mercedes engines. Those parameters are expected to change next season as Red Bull looks for alternatives to Renault engines, which have proven an unreliable liability so far this season, and have been known to be keen on Mercedes power

20Could Ross Brawn lose his license for speeding?

Are Formula One legends above the law when it comes to driving on public roads? No and that belief hasn't stopped a handful of drivers from getting into their fair share of trouble. Lewis Hamilton, for example, had his license revoked in France. Michael Schumacher, on the other hand, has gotten into an array of amusing fender-benders behind the wheel of "ordinary" vehicles. Now you can add to their ranks on Ross Brawn, the legendary race strategist responsible for countless race wins and world t

14Honda CEO reportedly rules out return to Formula One

Things could hardly have played out worse for Honda. It has poured what surely amounted to billions of dollars for years into its Formula One team with little effect. Then it brought in Ross Brawn, only to withdrew its support from the squad, then it sold the entire operation to Brawn while paying out big bucks to avoid an even bigger severance bill. And only then did Brawn turn the F1 team into a winner. That'd be enough to send some automakers scurrying to get back in the game, but not Honda.

17Rumormill: Pending F1 diffuser decision will favor Brawn, Williams, Toyota

Formula 1 so far this year has probably provided a lot more excitement than anyone expected, and in a change from the usual, this time a lot of it is good. The two races so far have seen a heap of on-track passing – and not just of backmarkers – as well as an inversion of the standings: McLaren and Ferrari near at the bottom, Brawn (née Honda) and Toyota are at the top.
