Brawn OBE

Mercedes GP Team Principal Ross Brawn paid a special visit to Buckingham Palace in order to be awarded his Order of the British Empire (OBE) from Queen Elizabeth II.

Brawn received his award for leading his eponymously-named team to both the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championship in its maiden year, and unprecedented achievement in F1 and especially so, given that the team was created from a last-minute rescue operation out of the ashes of the Honda team.
