Ross Brawn: Barrichello Has Fighting Spirit

Ross Brawn believes Rubens Barrichello's bitterness following his latest defeat by team-mate Jenson Button is a healthy sign.

Barrichello was left surprised at the team's decision to switch Button from a three-stop strategy to two stops just a lap prior to his first trip into the pits whilst he remained unchanged.

The 36-year-old was clearly unhappy at missing out on a victory he felt should have been his after passing pole-sitter Button on the run down to the first corner.

Brawn, though, is delighted Barrichello is displaying the kind of fighting spirit he was unable to show during his years at Ferrari when he basically served as Michael Schumacher's stooge.

Rubens' unhappiness is natural, said Ross Brawn Brawn.

Despite the fact Button has now won four of this year's five grands prix to lead Barrichello by 14 points in the championship, Brawn is delighted with the job the veteran has done so far.
