I thought Brawn GP escaped some sort of ban. In any case, he SHOULD be banned! Driving fast and endangering others is not acceptable. Wanna drive fast, do it a the track.

@dundriver

any ordinary driver like you or me caught doing that would be banned immediately and probably get three months in the cells... perhaps Ross in in line for a peerage?

Saying that he was late for a meeting and was held up in roadworks is not an excuse for speeding. I do think a ban would have been expected for most people and it sends out a bad message if there seems to be one law for celebrities and another for the likes of you and me.

Alain Prost was booked once for doing these sorts of speeds but as he had just won the WDC and was driving a well maintained high-performance sports car, the judge decided he really did have the skills to drive safely at those speeds and let him off with a caution not to do it again. That seemed fair. The judge thought about the issues.

Ross Brawn isn't a highly skilled racing driver.
