Mercedes race disappoints Brawn
- From the section Formula 1
Mercedes team boss Ross Brawn says the race weekend has been "a long way away from what we expected" after Mercedes fail to score any points at the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.
Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg had qualified fourth and seventh respectively, but Schumacher retired early on with a gearbox problem while Rosberg finished a lowly 12th after a mechanical failure on the last lap.
Despite the weekend being "very disappointing" for the team, Brawn admits he is happy with the controversial aerodynamic design of the Mercedes W03.
