Button wins the Behrain Grand Prix

Jenson Button won his third Grand Prix of the season this afternoon in the heat and sand of Bahrain.

The English driver started in fourth place on the grid but drove a brilliant race to take his third chequered flag of the season ahead of Sebastian Vettel and Jarno Trulli. The win sees Button consolidate his place at the top of the drivers' championship.

Last year's champion Lewis Hamilton finally had something to smile about in what has been a disastrous season thus far. The McClaren driver finished in fourth place.
