Button wins shortened Malaysian GP
Sunday, 05 April 2009
Nobody expected that the rain would play such a key role in the Malaysian Grand Prix. Pit stop strategy proved crucial as conditions changed and Brawn GP's Jenson Button won amid much confusion as the race was red flagged after 32 laps.

The biggest gamble of the day came from Ferrari. When Raikkonen pitted on the 18th lap they put him on wets early, and it proved a disastrous decision as he lapped 21s slower than Button. Kimi eventually finished in 14th place.
