Nothing like having "the big one" within a few feet of the start of the race, eh?

Jenson Button ended today’s Turkish Grand Prix in fourth position after a strong performance from sixth on the grid, securing a further five points for the Honda Racing F1 Team.
His team-mate Rubens Barrichello finished eighth having started from 13th position. He enjoyed a tremendous race with four great overtaking manoeuvres, guaranteeing the team a two-car finish and a solid total haul of six-points.
Today’s result again reduces the gap to third position in the Constructors’ Championship, with the Honda Racing F1 Team now on 58 points with four rounds still remaining.
Hot on the heels of its own first win just a few weeks ago, the Honda team would also like to congratulate Felipe Massa on his first grand prix victory and wishes him a well-deserved celebration.
