Jenson Button hailed his Brawn car in Turkey as the best he has driven so far this year after storming to his sixth victory of the season.
The Briton started from second position behind Sebastian Vettel, but he took the lead very early on and never looked back. Button was unbeatable again and took his sixth win in seven races, finishing over six seconds ahead of Mark Webber after cruising over the final laps.
"Today the car was the best it has been this year," said a delighted Button. "We have been quick on other occasions but the car was loose and not suiting my style. I have to thank everyone, it just keeps getting better.
"I don't know if this circuit suits us more than other. The car was fantastic today and I wish I could have had all the boys of the podium."
Although Button came under pressure from polesetter Vettel in the second part of the race, he was aware that the Red Bull driver had an extra stop to do and admitted he was never too worried. The Briton claimed his team was simply in another league this weekend.
"It was OK, I knew that he was going short," Button said. "We knew what lap he was going to stop on. It is still not a very nice feeling to see a car catch you eight tenths a lap. Today we were a step ahead and it is a nice feeling."
The Brawn driver is now 26 points ahead of teammate Rubens Barrichello in the standings, and with the British Grand Prix coming up.
"The British GP is always special even when times have been tougher. Leading the championship by 26 points is quite a nice feeling and I am looking forward to it very much," added Button, who became the first man to win in Turkey having not started from pole.
