After Sunday's incident, it was possible to forget the event had started with F1's first trial of a sprint weekend format.
Qualifying took place on Friday evening with Lewis Hamilton, Lando Norris and George Russell wowing the partisan home crowd before the 17-lap sprint provided entertainment on Saturday when a few drivers threw caution to the wind.
Brawn assessed: "I’m very pleased with F1’s first sprint weekend. Our belief was that it would add more engagement for fans across three days, and it definitely did. I don’t see how it did anything other than enhance the race weekend.
"The fact that teams had less time to practice had a significant impact on the weekend. Red Bull had a car with a bit more wing on it so were slower down the straight. Mercedes went for a lower drag setting, which gave Lewis the opportunity.
"If they were starting again, one or both might have done something different. Teams crave perfection and that’s great because it’s F1 but sometimes a bit of jeopardy is great for the fans."
