Brawn Racing? Surely not…

The F1 world is waiting to discover whether Honda’s team will make it onto the grid next year.

Becken has unearthed an interesting detail potentially revealing the name of the new team as Brawn Racing:

There?s an interesting history regarding an internet domain registered by a lawyer named Caroline McGrory (former BAR employee!). She taken two names:

BRAWNRACING.COM and BRAWNRACING.CO.UK

Here, the data concerning the domain register:

BRAWNRACING.COM

Registrant: Caroline McGrory
28 The Hall Close
Rugby
Cv22 6NP
UK

Domain name: brawnracing.com

Created on: 2009-02-25
Expires on: 2011-02-25

Is this the new identity of the team formerly known as Honda? Or someone taking a punt on what the team will be called, and pre-emptively registering the domain name in the hope of making some quick cash? Answers in the comments…

    who cares what they call it, they will be lucky even to have a race team the way things are going. No one wants to stay.

    Why not be really cheeky and call it Super Aguri?

    So when Jenson and eventual team mate overtake a backmarker simultaneously, they’ll be able to call it a Brawn sandwich…

    I am a big fan of Ross Brawn and Jenson Button.Jenson is a brilliant driver and Brawn a fine engineer.Who gives toss about the name.Everyone at Brawn GP should be applauded for making sure we have not lost you all out of F1.I wish you all the success in the world.
