Brawn Delighted after Sixth Straight Title

Ferrari technical director Ross Brawn claimed the Italian team are already looking towards next season after reaching winning their sixth consecutive Constructors' Championship at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Ferrari technical director Ross Brawn claimed the Italian team are already looking towards next season after reaching winning their sixth consecutive Constructors' Championship at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

World Champion Michael Schumacher has led the team to 12 victories from 13 races this year while teammate Rubens Barrichello has worked well in his back-up role to gather in the points that have won them the title.

"It always takes a while to sink in - but this has been a fantastic year and I am very proud to get a one-two here after last year," Brawn said. "We simply have an amazing group here all working towards the same objectives and we are seeing the results of that.

"When McLaren and Williams were winning I had respect for them and went about trying to beat them. But it will be a big challenge to do it again next year with the regulation changes."

The Italian team were utterly dominant two years ago when they won 15 of the 17 races but they could still beat that record - which they hold with McLaren - if they win four of the remaining five races.

This year marked their 14th Constructors' Championship victory since they made their debut in 1950, when the World Championship began, and put them five ahead of the next best team Williams.

Their points tally this season has so far reached 202 and, with a total of 90 remaining, they look likely to comfortably outscore the record tally of 221 points in a season they set in 2002.

"To win in this style was great and to clinch the Constructors' Championship is very important," said Schumacher who led every lap of the race in Hungary after starting from pole. "Everyone in the team deserves this win. It is just so perfect, outstanding."

Schumacher has won 63 of the 139 races he has driven for Ferrari and he has contributed 120 points from his tally of 12 wins this season.
