Button wins again as Ferrari closes in

Jenson Button won his fifth grand prix out of six races this year when he won the Monaco Grand prix from pole.

I think these five wins have set Button well for the title this year but it was also very evident that the Ferrari had closed the gap.

After starting the season so badly there were good signs for Ferrari in Monaco as Ferrari got its first podium of the season through Kimi Raikkonen who finished third.

In between Button and Raikkonen was Brawn GP's Rubens Barrichello who started third on the grid but snatched second place just after the start and never lost if for the rest of the race.

Just outside the podium was Ferrari's Felipe Massa who I think had a very good race. This made sure that both Ferrari cars got points for the first time this season and this could be the turning point for the team.

After getting a podium the last time around in Barcelona, this time Mark Webber got fifth place ahead of Nico Rosberg.

The last two points places were taken by former world champion Fernando Alonso and Torro Rosso's Sebastien Bourdais in eighth.

It was so close for Force India's Giancarlo Fisichella who finished in ninth place. He got so close to getting the first points for his team and it was also a positive sign to see Adrian Sutil also finish the race.

The next race will be in two weeks in Turkey and it will be interesting to see if Ferrari will keep on improving and take on Brawn GP.

Ferrari helps in making a performance really good. Jenson Button is just amazing. Looking forward to the next race and I am sure Ferrari will play its best role.

Thanks for the comment Glenn. I also think that Turkey will show how the season will go for the remaining races. Button is the man to catch and Ferrari look like they are now heading in the right direction.
