AFP - Reigning world champion Jenson Button driving a McLaren-Mercedes won the Australian Grand Prix on the Albert Park street circuit in Melbourne on Sunday.

Ferrari teammate Fernando Alonso followed up his Bahrain GP triumph with fourth ahead of Mercedes GP's Nico Rosberg and McLaren's Lewis Hamilton.
