Head of F1 team accused of speeding by police

PLYMOUTH, England — The head of Formula One's Brawn GP team will go to court next month after he was accused of driving his Mercedes 100 mph on a road with a 70 mph limit.

Ross Brawn was cited by police in southwest England on May 30.

He was to have appeared in court Tuesday, and he could lose his license. The case was rescheduled for Sept. 4 because the 54-year-old brawn is out of the country for races in Spain and Belgium.

The Brawn GP team leads the constructors' championship, with Jenson Button first in the drivers' standings.
