F1 boss facing drive ban after speeding charge

Posted By: Staff

London, Aug 5 (ANI): Ross Brawn, the head of Brawn GP, is facing a driving ban after he was charged with speeding.

The 54-year-old Formula One team principal is accused of reaching speeds of 100mph in his Mercedes on the 70mph limit A30 at Sourton, near Okehampton, Devon, on May 30.

Brawn, from Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, has not entered a plea, reports The Telegraph.

He was not present at Plymouth Magistrates' Court because he is abroad preparing for the team's next races in Spain and Belgium.

His legal team was granted an adjournment in the case.

Magistrates agreed to put off the case and Brawn will be expected to appear early next month when there is no race weekend. (ANI)
