Australian GP: Brawn Racing Teammates Button, Barrichello Finish 1-2

Jenson Button Brawn GP by cbc888.Jenson Button had to hear the skeptics for two years who thought that he was overrated and overpaid. Well, he has shut them up now.

Jenson Button was spectacular en route to what was an easy win. He dominated for the entire race and the day became sweeter for Button, as well as his teammate Rubens Barrichello, when Sebastien Vettel and Robert Kubica, who were running in second and third respectively, ran each other off of the track with three laps to go. Barrichello, consequently, finished in second and Jarno Trulli crossed the finish line in third. Trulli, however, was given a 25 second penalty after the race for overtaking Lewis Hamilton during the safety car period, which left Trulli out of the points.

Trulli’s penalty meant that reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton finished in third. Hamilton had performed poorly in qualifying and he also had a gearbox failure, which left him to start the race in 18th, but he drove like a champion as he threaded through the field en route to a third place finish.
