Mercedes-Benz AcquiresWorld Champion Brawn GP F1 Team

Mercedes-Benz has a long history in grand prix racing. McLaren and Mercedes have won several world championships throughout their fourteen year history together, but now the two companies have gone their separate ways. Although Mercedes will continue to provide McLaren with engines, the automaker has sold its stake back to the racing team. In it's place, Benz has acquired a 75% stake in the Brawn GP team and will now be re branded as Mercedes Grand Prix. The team has already signed Nico Rosberg-one of the youngest and most promising talents on the grid with intentions to announce it's second driver before the 2010 Championship. This will add more drama for the Formula 1 2010 season to come. Can not wait to watch!
