It seems that the Honda saga has come to a happy ending with Honda and Ross Brawn announcing the formation of Brawn GP taking over the old Honda team. Not only that, they actually have a car doing shakedown at Silverstone.
The colours are a bit funny - black, white and lime green. Though I suspect this is only the interim livery before an official one is announced nearer to Melbourne. The surprise is that the engines will be supplied by Mercedes, or not a surprise when looking back at what Vijay Mallya said earlier about not minding Mercedes supplying engines so as not to lose another team. Hmmm....
And not only is Mercedes a supplier, I suspect McLaren supplied the chassis and body as well looking at the shape of the car especially the sidepods. Those sidepods are a dead giveaway.
