Brawn GP's Jenson Button will start from the front of the grid in Sunday's Malaysian Formula One Grand Prix, making it back-to-back poles for the English driver. Button set a time of 1 minute, 35.181 seconds in Saturday's qualifying to finish almost a tenth of a second ahead of Toyota's Jarno Trulli.

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel was third but receives a ten-place grid penalty from the last race. Rubens Barrichello was fourth quickest but gets a five-place penalty for changing a gearbox. Ferrari's Felipe Massa was eliminated in the first session of qualifying and will start from 16th.
