Button races to Turkey win

Jenson Button

Jenson Button has claimed victory in the Turkish Grand Prix, increasing his lead at the top of the Drivers' Championship table.

Button started in second behind Sebastian Vettel, but when Vettel went onto the grass in turn nine of the first lap, Button made his move.

He took first, and as is becoming more and more usual, maintained his lead comfortably throughout the race.

Vettel ended up finishing third behind his Red Bull team mate Mark Webber

But Jenson's Brawn team mate Rubens Barrichello didn't have such a good race.

He had to retire in the late stages of the race with what might have been gear box problems.
