Button in second win

Brawn GP's Jenson Button won his second race this season in as many races as he won the shortened Malaysian Grand prix at Sepang.

This was a race of a different kind as the heavy rain meant that the race could not go the full length and the drivers in the points positions only got half the normal points.

But Button's win continued the good start to the season for the new team and this time Rubens Barrichello finished fifth.

Joining Button on the podium were Nick Heidfeld in second and then Tim Glock in third.

This means that a Toyota driver has also been on the podium for the second consecutive race.

Jarno Trulli who finished third in Melbourne finished fourth this time and I think whilst most people will talk about Brawn GP, this has also been a very good start for the Toyota team.

Mark Webber collected his first points for the season finishing sixth and so did reigning champion Lewis Hamilton who finished seventh to collect a single point.

William's Nico Rosberg finished in the last points place.

Ferrari's miserable start to the new season continued with Felipe Massa finishing just outside the points in ninth but his team mate Kimi Raikkonen fared worse finishing 14th.

Now the teams will take a two week break with the next race in a fortnight's time at the Chinese grand prix.

I would have loved to see this race go the full length but the weather won but I hope the Shanghai race will actually show where the season is heading this year.
