McLaren's Jenson Button marked his 200th Formula One race by winning the Hungarian Grand Prix in Budapest on Sunday.


On the Hungaroring track where he won his first F1 race five years ago, the 31-year-old Briton came in 3.588sec ahead of Germany's championship leader Sebastian Vettel in a Red Bull with Spaniard Fernando Alonso of Ferrari in third at 19.819.

Defending champion Vettel, fought back after being fourth two-thirds into the race, now has an 85 point lead in the championship on his teammate Mark Webber of Australia who finished fifth.

Button won the world title in 2009 with the then-Brawn - now Mercedes - team.
