Jenson Button speeds to victory in Spain

Britain's Jenson Button is on top of the world after winning the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona.

Button and his team Brawn GP have now won four out of five races. He has now stretched his lead at the top of the Formula One drivers championship to 14 points.

The British speedster, who started in pole position, was closely followed by his teammate Rubens Barrichello.

Lewis Hamilton started 14th on the grid. He came a disappointing ninth.

Jenson Button did not lead the race all the way. His team mate Rubens Barrichello stormed through from third on the grid to take the lead at the first corner.

Barrichello led for much of it, but Button had a different strategy and managed to get past him during pit stops.
