A great qualifying session has once again resulted in a Brawn driver at the front, and although Rubens Barrichello pushed hard during all three stages, it was Jenson Button who finally came out on top with a last gasp corker of a lap. Alongside the Briton is this season’s only other race winner so far, Sebastian Vettel, who will want to edge his RB5 ahead of the Brawn BGP 001 through the first corner. Rubens Barrichello and Felipe Massa make up the next row while Mark Webber and Timo Glock complete the third row.
