Jenson Button wins 2009 Spanish Grand Prix
Tuesday, May 12, 2009
His teammate Rubens Barrichello finished second, who used a more efficient three-stop fuel strategy than Sebastian Vettel from Red Bull, who finished fourth. Australian Mark Webber also benefited from an earlier pit-stop to overtake his teammate Vettel.
Sebastien Vettel too chased down the Ferrari car of Felipe Massa, who unsuccessfully defended his position using his optional KERS regenerative brake. Massa was short on fuel and needed to slow on the dying laps of the race.
The drivers' championship leader is Jenson Button, who is 14 points ahead of his teammate and 18 ahead of Vettel. The constructors' standings are dominated by BrawnGP drivers with nearly 30 points lead over Red Bull.
