Jenson Button wins 2009 Monaco Grand Prix
Sunday, May 24, 2009
Räikkönen's third for Ferrari was accompanied by Felipe Massa on the fourth place, the best result for the team so far.
Another winner of this season, Sebastian Vettel, crashed his Red Bull into the wall of tyres on the 15th lap going out of the race.
After the finish, Button forgot to put his car beside the second and third finishers resulting in his run from parc fermé to the main straight where he finally received his trophy from the hands of Prince Albert II.
Jenson Button strengthened his lead in the Drivers' championship to 51 points with Barrichello 16 and Vettel 28 points behind. Brawn GP now dominates the Constructors' standings with 86, more than 40 points ahead of Red Bull.
This year is the 80th anniversary of the first Monaco Grand Prix, but this one is only the 67th GP on this circuit because some years it wasn't held.
