Jenson Button wins Spanish grand prix

Jenson Button secured his fourth victory of the Formula 1 season with a brilliant win at the Spanish grand prix.

The Brawn driver began the race on pole position but started badly and was overtaken by his team-mate Rubens Barrichello on the first corner.

Button's decision to revert to a two stop strategy early on in the race paid dividends when he made his second pit stop after 48 laps and then led the race from that point onwards.

Barrichello finished in second place on a brilliant day for the Brawn team while Mark Webber grabbed third place in his Red Bull. Lewis Hamilton had yet another race to forget struggling with his car before eventually claiming ninth spot.
