Brawn GP could not have wished for a better season-opener: announcing a coveted deal with Virgin and then seeing drivers Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello sweep the front row and took a one-two in the race - despite Barrichello making an awful start and being involved in several collisions.
The ongoing diffuser row is the only question mark for Brawn. That pre-event furore marked the start of a weekend of protests, stewards' deliberations and penalties as F1's new era got off to a chaotic, controversial but ultimately extremely entertaining start.
