Ross Brawn could lose his license after police caught him doing 100mph in his Mercedes road car in a 70mph speed zone on the A30 (UK).

Referring to the May 30 incident, his lawyers wrote to magistrates asking for a court adjournment because the Brawn GP team owner and boss is currently abroad.

The Daily Mail said Brawn, who has not entered a plea, will instead appear in court early in September.

Brawn's F1 team, Brawn GP, is currently leading the 2009 Formula 1 constructor's championship by 15.5 points, and Brawn driver Jenson Button is currently leading the driver's championship by a solid 18.5 points. The half points are on account of the rain-halted Malaysian GP, which awarded half the normal allotment of points.

Brawn GP's success has stalled in the second half of the season, however, as both Button and Rubens Barrichello struggle to reach podium finishes where they once dominated the front of the grid.
