Webber gets second as Button shines

Jenson Button continued his fine run in this season's Formula 1 season after winning the Turkish Grand prix.

This was Button's sixth win in seven races so far and what made this win even more remarkable was that he did not start from pole.

The previous winners of this grand prix had won pole and Button became the first driver to win without starting from pole.

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel won pole but an early mistake in the race made sure Button capitalized and led the race from then onwards.

Mark Webber had a very good race as he secured yet another podium finish. Webber finished second ahead of pole setter and team-mate Vettel.

It was a good race for Toyota with Jarno Trulli finishing fourth ahead of Williams's Nico Rosberg. Both Toyota cars secured points in this race.

After a good race in Monaco for Ferrari, this time it was just an ordinary one and it wasn't surprising to see Felipe Massa finish sixth and his team-mate Kimi Raikkonen finished just outside the points in ninth.

The last two points places went to BMW Sauber's Robert Kubica and Toyota's Timo Glock.

BMW Sauber are not the team they were last season when they challenged for the podium in nearly every race but this season it seems like a point is a big achievement in itself.

Button's team-mate Rubens Barrichello retired after 47 laps and this was the first time that a Brawn GP car has failed to finish a race.

The next race will be at Silverstone. Whilst last year the Silverstone crowds were cheering Lewis Hamilton, this time its a turn for Button who could be wrapping the championship very soon if he continues with his winning streak.
