Jenson takes the hat trick

Jenson Button has taken his third win on the dusty track at Bahrain, with Sebastian Vettel and Jarno Trulli, second and third.  He feels his run of victories is not set to last so he is enjoying the scent of victory while he can.

And get this:  He even lapped a Ferrari.

Didn't I pass that Ferrari once already?

It was a race that wrong-footed a lot of drivers who chose a harder compound tyre.  The BMWs seem to have done paticularly badly.

However it seems Jenson is resigned to the fact that the technological gap Brawn has over it’s competitors is narrowing rapidly.  Red Bull and Toyota are very much in the ascent.

But what of the old order?  Ferrari, McLaren and  Renault?  Well they had another weekend of frustration.  Only Lewis Hamilton came well in the points, in fourth.  He made good use of his KERS button to slingshot past Vettel at one point.  The first time anybody seems to have made any real use of the KERS system.

Vettel looks like he is ready to melt while Jenson does his Cheshire cat impression

But the race settled down not long after the first few laps and very little real battling took place.  Unlike the last two races, this race has been as hot and dry as an oven.
