Button secures pole position for the Spanish Grand Prix

Jenson Button continued his brilliant form in this season's Formula 1 championship by claiming pole position for Sunday's Spanish Grand Prix.

The world championship leader grabbed the top starting spot ahead of Sebastian Vettel in dramatic fashion at the end of qualifying this morning.

While Button ensured his third start from pole position this season, his Brawn GP team-mate Rubens Barrichello secured third place in yet another excellent performance in qualifying by the fledgling team.

Last year's Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton enjoyed another day to forget and will start the race way back in 14th place. It already looks as if it will be a season to forget for the McLaren driver.
