Jenson Button wins 2009 Bahrain Grand Prix
Monday, April 27, 2009
Though Toyota drivers grabbed the front row in Saturday's qualifying, they could not compete for long with their lightly fueled cars and slipped to the pits earlier than competitors. This cost two places for Jarno Trulli and even more for his teammate Timo Glock, who ended up at 7th position.
The defending champion Lewis Hamilton missed out what would have been the first podium for McLaren this season, crossing the finishing line some 12 seconds behind Trulli. Button's teammate Rubens Barrichello stayed close behind Hamilton, finishing fifth.
