Jenson Button wins the Turkish Grand Prix

Jenson Button continued his brilliant form in this year's Formula One championship by claiming his sixth victory in seven outings taking the Chequered Flag at the Turkish Grand Prix.

Despite starting from second place on the grid behind Sebastian Vettel, Button again produced a flawless display, taking full advantage of a mistake by the Red Bull driver in the first lap.

Button's Brawn GP team-mate, Rubens Barrichello, endured a terrible start to the race when he stalled his car on the grid. Having begun the day just 16 points off the top spot in the driver's championship, the Brazilian now finds himself 26 points behind the leader Button

Last year's champion Lewis Hamilton suffered yet another humiliating day at the races in his McClaren. The English driver finished way back in 13th place, a full 80.4 seconds behind Button.
