Rubens Barrichello said he was short for words after scoring his second win of the season at the Italian Grand Prix on Sunday.
The Brazilian had won the European Grand Prix last month and continued with his momentum, leading Brawn teammate Jenson Button to another one-two for the Mercedes-powered squad.
Barrichello, starting from fifth position, admitted he had a difficult night as he was concerned about his gearbox, which in the end the team decided not to replace.
The delighted Brawn driver admitted the first lap was crucial for his win.
"It feels great," said Barrichello. "Like I said on the lap after I got the checkered flag I have no words. I had a tough night as we didn't know about the gearbox this or that. We had an over-torque in Spa and there are concerns, but I hope it is going to do the four races.
"It was great to do a good start. Kovi was coming quite fast with that power button and I had to defend myself and I went wide so it was a bit tough. But it was great first lap and it made my race. The pace was great, the brakes were great - it was a bit like Valencia, with the pace there all the time.
"I feel great, it feels really good with all this public, they are more in red than white, but it still feels great."
The victory allowed Barrichello to continue to close the gap on Button in the standings, the Brazilian now 14 points adrift with four races left. With the Red Bull drivers now all but out of contention, Barrichello says he is now expecting a "healthy" fight with Button.
"It feels great, it is a winning year whatever happens. It is not long ago that we had no jobs, we didn't know what was going to happen so we are finally driving a fantastic car with a fantastic engine with a team doing a fantastic job.
"I must thank them for all their efforts, the strategy was great, the work we did on Friday was fantastic, so it is really good.
"We both had different tyres and different strategy but the car was good on both of them. I am going to give my very best and there will be a good and a healthy fight and I am looking forward to that."
