F1 Racing - - RACE PREVIEW -

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.
