McLaren driver Jenson Button is delighted with his victory in Hungary in his 200th Grand Prix.

McLaren’s Jenson Button has described his victory at today’s Hungarian Grand Prix as a "great moment".

The 31-year-old beat Championship leader Sebastian Vettel into second place to claim his second win of the year.

"It's good we've a couple of weeks' break now because it might take me that long to get over tonight,” Button said.

"But I won my first race here in 2006, again here, so this is a great moment. I like these conditions. I don't know why, but it was a great call by the team to switch to the prime tyres rather than the inters (when the rain was again falling).

"But everyone has worked so hard, and although we go into the break on a high, we'll be thinking of Spa [at the end of August) and we'll be ready to go again."

Button is in fifth place in the standings, while Vettel is 85 points clear at the top ahead of Red Bull teammate Mark Webber.
