Brawn back in action

Ross Brawn is back at the helm of Mercedes GP after missing the Spanish GP on medical grounds.

Brawn said in Monaco that he had been diagnosed with an irregular heart beat and that doctors wanted to determine the cause, which they have now done, and are happy for him to travel again

"I think it had something to do with Manchester United!" Brawn laughed.

An avid Red Devils fan, Brawn shared the dismay of Sir Alex Ferguson and the entire Manchester United team on the last day of the British Premier League season when, with 90 minutes of the game gone, title rivals Manchester City were losing 2-1 to relegation-battling Queens Park Rangers, owned by Caterham boss Tony Fernandes.

As all British football fans know, City shocked United and took the title in the most dramatic fashion when they scored twice in time added on, to win 3-2.
