The Brawns could not compete with the Red Bulls and fell back to fifth and sixth - Jenson Button ahead of Rubens Barrichello - behind Felipe Massa and Nico Rosberg when their three stop strategies unfolded.

The result reduces Button's championship lead to 21 points over Vettel, with Webber and Barrichello a further 1.5 and 3.5 points adrift respectively.
