Button Snatches Victory In Canadian GP – rpmGo.com

The former world champion Jenson Button managed to win “the best race of my life” last Sunday. He managed to do it in great style, starting from the back of the grid and passing S. Vettel on the very last lap of the race. The race was red-flagged for two hours due to heavy raining and we saw the deployment of five safety cars.

Button’s victory is very impressive if we take into consideration the fact that he had a clash with Hamilton who in the eight lap of the race had to abandon the race. Button, after visiting the pit stops for six times, managed to win the Canadian GP in great style. He was under investigation following the crashes with Alonso and Hamilton, but he didn’t get any penalty.

I am glad to see that Formula 1 is once again exciting, after a couple of years of a rather boring competition.
