CLASSIC RACE: 2010
Jenson Button beat his McLaren team-mate Lewis Hamilton by just 1.53s to win a thrilling race and take the lead in the drivers’ championship. There was drama right from the outset when Fernando Alonso shot from P3 into the lead as the lights went out, which resulted in him being handed a drive-through penalty for jump-starting.
The Safety Car came out after a multi-car shunt involving Force India’s Tonio Liuzzi and Sauber’s Kamui Kobayashi. In a race of ever-changing conditions punctuated with plenty of overtaking and spins, Button held his nerve to take the lead after a second Safety Car, keeping ahead of Hamilton to win the race.
