Button wins Canadian Grand Prix in last lap

MONTREAL - Jenson Button took advantage of a last-lap slide by Sebastian Vettel and passed the runaway championship points leader on the final trip down the backstretch to win the rain-soaked Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday.

Button had fallen to 21st after two run-ins with other cars and a speed limit penalty, but he steadily moved up and ran the fastest lap of the day in Lap 69 to sit less than a second behind Vettel entering the final trip around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. As the German navigated a chicane on the backstretch, the rear of his Red Bull car slipped wide on the slippery track and Button sped past him to take the checkered flag for McLaren.
