Brawn vows to fight on in Brazil

The disappointment on Ross Brawn’s face matched that of Michael Schumacher, who spent a lonely few laps after his retirement at Suzuka peering at the cars through a circuit fence.

”We were controlling the race,” said Ferrari’s technical director Brawn, whose number one driver must now count on a win and a retirement from Fernando Alonso in order to seal the title in Brazil.

Brawn told ‘RTL’ that the engine failure was not predicted by telemetry, and that bad luck also struck Ferrari in the form of Felipe Massa’s tyre puncture.

”Everything looked completely normal (until the failure),” the Briton rued. ”It is really unfortunate and very disappointing, but we will keep on fighting.”
