Flawless Button

I said yesterday that I couldn’t rule Brawn GP’s Jenson Button out of winning the Turkish Grand Prix, and I was right! He made his sixth win from seven races look easy as he cruised to a 26 point advantage in the World Drivers’ Championship.

He took the lead away from pole-sitter Sebastian Vettel on the first lap, and dominated the rest of the race from there on in.

Vettel could only manage third, as his Red Bull teammate Mark Webber snuck into the second spot.

Button’s closest championship rival Rubens Barrichello had an awful race, eventually dropping out with 11 laps to go, due to gearbox troubles.

Button’s making a lot of hay while the sun shines, and is showing the kind of form which will win him the World title. There’s not a lot of time left for the others to catch him up.
