Spanish Grand Prix Winner!

Jenson Button
The Spanish Grand Prix saw leaps in development, good racing, interesting tactics and a familiar outcome. Jenson Button secured his fourth win from five starts this season further propelling him into a firm lead in the Drivers Championship. It was a surprising weekend for Braw GP’s Rubens Barrichello as he visibly caught out by teammate Jenson Button’s Pole position qualifying lap and then even more nonplussed by the change in pit strategy that vaulted the British driver ahead of the Brazilian to take the win.

Red Bull’s Mark Webber placed third to complete the podium and give a boost to the Australian as he has been behind his teammate, Sebastian Vettel, for most of this season so far. Vettel fell prey to trailing Ferrari’s Felipe Massa, running KERS, and struggled to pass the red car in order to reach the podium.

The first turn of the race produced a cloud of carbon fiber carnage as Toyota’s Jarno Tulli, Force India’s Adrian Sutil and both Toro Rosso’s all came together prompting a 4-lap Safety Car period.
