Button roars Brawn to victory

Jenson Button has hailed a "monster" of a car which has left him on the verge of making history.

Button won the Turkish Grand Prix, opening up a 26-point-lead over Brawn GP team-mate Rubens Barrichello.

He now has the chance to make it seven wins from eight races at Silverstone - equalling a record set by the legendary Michael Schumacher.

The 20-year-old had tears in his eyes after producing a stunning drive to take the chequered flag.

Button said: "This is the first race where the car has been absolutely perfect for me.

"Ten to 15 laps in, I thought it was probably not a good idea, but I really wanted to radio the team and say 'This car is outrageous!`"
