Jenson Button secured arguably the greatest win of his Formula One career at the end of an epic Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal. Jenson Button took a stunning victory in a dramatic, rain-affected Canadian Grand Prix by passing Sebastian Vettel on the last lap of an absorbing race. Button then made it to the line for a sensational victory, the 10th of his career, and first since last year’s Chinese Grand Prix 14 months ago. Red Bull’s Mark Webber was third and Mercedes’ Michael Schumacher fourth.
It was a rain-hit race that had everything but it boiled down to the last lap just as the clock had also hit the two-hour limit. Red Bull’s reigning champion, Sebastian Vettel, was hounded into making an error by the charging Button, sliding wide on the last lap to open the door, with the 31-year-old McLaren driver needing no second invitation.
Vettel’s Red Bull ran wide under pressure to gift the win to Button, who recovered after a collision with McLaren team-mate Lewis Hamilton.
Red Bull’s Mark Webber was third to deprive Mercedes driver Michael Schumacher of a podium place.
Vettel now leads the championship by 60 points from Button.
An incident-packed race saw the safety car used five times and included a two-hour stoppage for heavy rain. Button himself made five pit stops on his way to victory as well as an enforced visit to the pits for a drive-through penalty for speeding under the safety car.
An emotional Button described the win as possibly the best of his career.
He said: “I really don’t know what to say, it’s been a very emotional race. The incident with Lewis – I couldn’t see anything and I’ve apologised to him.
“It was really a fight from then on, but I kept on pushing and I managed to get past Seb at the end. Another great win for me and possibly my best.”
