Barrichello had vaulted into the lead at the start, but Button switched to a two-stop plan at the first stops and maintained a strong enough pace on heavy fuel to emerge ahead.

Mark Webber completed the podium for Red Bull, as his front row starting team-mate Sebastian Vettel's race was compromised by getting stuck behind Felipe Massa's Ferrari off the line.
