Brawn showing favouritism??
Following Brawn GP’s interesting change of tactics during the Spanish Grand Prix—which contributed to denying Rubens Barrichello his first win since 2004—the Brazilian was rather vocal in his disappointment. After the event he spoke to SpeedTV:
If I get the slightest sniff of the fact that they have favored Jenson, I will hang up my helmet tomorrow. But I know Ross [Brawn] wouldn’t do that. He asked me to drive for him and he knows I want to race fairly with Jenson.Brawn was quick to retort in BBC:
We don't have a one and a two driver. They’re both on equal terms and conditions. Once he [Barrichello] got back and we talked things through he was fine. Rubens is a great team player. Everyone is working so well together and Rubens and Jenson recognize that. The fact we have such a great atmosphere drives us on and we don’t want to lose that. We’ve been completely honest with the drivers. They know the situation and their engineers know that—there’s no favoritism.

Oh my god, I can't help but think of captions for the second pic. Its almost begging for a caption
1) Jean Todt: Please Ross, change your glasses! I can't look at them without throwing up.
2) Ross Brawn wonders if his lower lip is edible.
3)Jean Todt imagines what it would be like if he were as tall as Michael
Haha but back on topic, I doubt if they're really favouring Button. I think Rubens is past his best and unable to keep pace with Button as seen in nearly every qualifying, race starts and the soft tyre stint at Monaco to name a few.

BTW Brawn GP's success just goes to show the substantial role that Brawn played in Schumacher's success! If he can make a Jenson win 6 / 7 races..........
