Brawn GP's Jenson Button extended his lead at the head of the drivers' world championship to more than 20 points on Sunday when he cruised to victory in the Turkish Grand Prix, his sixth win in seven races.

REUTERS - Formula One leader Jenson Button ran away with the Turkish Grand Prix on Sunday for his sixth victory in seven races.
 
Australian Mark Webber was runner-up for Red Bull, taking the chequered flag 6.7 seconds behind the Briton's Brawn to equal his best ever finish, with his 21-year-old German team mate Sebastian Vettel third after starting on pole position.
