Button wraps up title

Brawn GP's Jenson Button wrapped up his first F1 championship title after finishing fifth in the Brazilian Grand Prix.

At the start of the race everything looked set for Rubens Barrichello after snatching pole but his pole advantage did not last long after Mark Webber took the first position after the first pit stops and then a puncture later in the race meant that this was not going to be his race.

One can say that Button won the championship in the first four races when he started so strongly but since then he has been consistently picking points here and there without necessarily winning the race.

Now with a total 89 points and with Sebastian Vettel on 74 and his team-mate Barrichello on 72, Button will go to the last race with nothing much to fight for as his team also won the constructors championship.

I think that its also a big achievement for a team in its first year to have won both the drivers and constructors' championnships.

Back to the race itself, Webber won his second career race after starting second on the grid. Joining him on the podium were Robert Kubica and Lewis Hamilton.

I think its worthwhile to point out that Hamilton started the race in 17th place and managed to finish third and also it was good just to see a BMW Sauber driver on the podium.

In fourth place was Vettel who can now fight for second place in the last race in Abu Dhabi.

Kimi Raikkonen finished sixth and the last two points places went to Torro Rosso Ferrari's Sebastien Buemi and then Barrichello.

Giancarlo Fisichella has got more race to score a point in a Ferrari after finishing tenth at Interlagos.

The last race of the season will the Abu Dhabi Grand prix.
