Barrichello gets another win

After waiting for five years without a win, Rubens Barrichello won ths Italian Grand Prix ahead of his team-mate Jenson Button.

The win means that Barrichello now trails Button by just 14 points with only four races remaining.

The race saw Brawn GP also return to the top positions that became very familiar at the start of the season but this time with Button in second position.

In third place was Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen but this came after Lewis Hamilton crushed on the final lap.

Behind Raikkonen was Force India's Adrian Sutil who I think could have done better had his race went on smoothly.

Former champion Fernando Alonso finished in fifth just ahead of McLaren's Heikki Kovalainen.

The last two points places went to Nick Heidfeld and Sebastian Vettel whose challenge for the title seems to be fading.

New Ferrari driver Giancarlo Fisichella could only finish ninth after starting 14th on the grid. I think his replacement at Force India Vitantonio Liuzzi would have finished ahead of him had he not retired from the race.

Mark Webber could not even complete a single lap after crushing out during the first lap. So in the end Red Bull had to settle for a single point.

The next race will the night race in Singapore.
