Maiden win for Button in Hungary
After six seasons and 113 grand prix starts, Jenson Button has finally scored a race win after taking the chequered flag in the rain-affected Hungarian Grand Prix.
The Honda driver crossed the line comfortably ahead of McLaren's Pedro de la Rosa and BMW Sauber's Nick Heidfeld - the podium perhaps reflecting the nature of an action-packed and at times chaotic race.
The result has no major effect on the championship race, with ***le contenders Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso both retiring.
After starting 15th on the grid, Renault's Alonso had risen to hold a commanding lead before a drive shaft failure signalled his demise on lap 52.
Meanwhile, struggling to score precious championship points as his tyres disintegrated, Schumacher retired from fourth place late in the race, his car suffering damage after being overtaken by Heidfeld.
Button's team-mate Rubens Barrichello finished fourth, ahead of Red Bull's David Coulthard, Toyota's Ralf Schumacher, BMW Sauber's Robert Kubica and Ferrari's Felipe Massa.
