Button Celebrates His Epic Montreal Comeback

Jenson Button captured his first F1 victory of 2011 in a sensational Canadian Grand Prix that had five safety car periods, a two hour rain delay and lasted for nearly four hours. Button made six trips through pit lane, including one for a drive-through penalty, was dead last at one point and overtook Sebastian Vettel for the victory on the final lap of the race.
