Button is understandably ecstatic. "I thought I'd made a catastrophic decision," admits Button. "But it was the right call." "He called that first stop and got us the win," says a tearful Martin Whitmarsh. All of us said it was a mistake but he proved us all wrong. Hamilton looks like thunder: "I drove my heart out and deserved better." Asked if his team were at fault he says: "The guys always do a great job but the strategy wasn't right." A great finish in seventh for Tonio Liuzzi in the Force India - read his race review here on Tuesday.

Lap 58

Button takes the flag from John Travolta and the world champion is back. Kubica comes in second, with Alonso leading home the two Ferraris, Rosberg in fifth and a livid Hamilton in sixth. Tonio Liuzzi in seventh. "Yeh, that feels so good," yelps Button. "Guys, fantastic job, congraulations to everyone."

Lap 57

Webber limps into the pits for a new wing ...he looked to be at fault there as Hamilton was attacking Alonso, Hamilton continuing in sixth but that's as good as it will get for him. Schumacher into the points into tenth. Button just has to keep going, proving all of us who said his race was over when he was called in for an early tyre change wrong.

Lap 56

Hamilton sending out angry signals and has a few choice words with his team over the radio. He's all over Alonso like a raging wasp ... and Webber hits Hamilton and the two of them skid off the track ... they both keep their engines running but Webber's front wing is off

Lap 55

Hamilton so much faster down the straight but needs to be closer out of the final corner. Schumacher bangs wheels with Alguersuari to pass him through the final corner.

Lap 54

Hamilton is still close to Alonso but the Spaniard is braking early and taking the pressure well. Webber is still watching from a safe distance.
