Brawn GP finds itself in a position to cruise to the 2009 world championship.

That is the claim of Flavio Briatore, the outspoken Renault boss who earlier denounced the Brackley based team's diffuser as illegal, and its drivers as lacking the credibility to contest motor racing's most prestigious crown.

And asked by Germany's Die Welt newspaper if he believes Brawn and Jenson Button, respectively 29.5 and 18 points clear in the constructors' and drivers' championships after five races, can be caught up, Briatore replied: "No.

"In Formula One nearly everything is possible, but I believe it is very difficult another team can win the title.

"They are well financed, and can develop further their car without problems, and for the competition that is a problem," added the Italian.

Despite the unique characteristics of this weekend's Grand Prix, boss Ross Brawn is expecting another strong performance for his team on the Monaco streets.

"The car is very good mechanically which you need to take advantage of the slow speed nature of the track," the Briton said, pointing out that while Button and teammate Rubens Barrichello have never won in the Principality, they have both stood on its podium.
