Rubens Barrichello wins the Italian Grand Prix

The 2009 Formula One season continues to be unpredictable. From AP-

Rubens Barrichello picked up his second win in three races to lead Brawn GP to a 1-2 finish at the Italian Grand Prix that tightened the Formula One title fight.

Barrichello and teammate Jenson Button both used one-stop strategies to get the sweep at the Monza circuit on Sunday.

Former Ferrari driver Barrichello shaved two points off Button’s overall lead by getting within 14 points with four races remaining.

Lewis Hamilton of McLaren crashed on his final lap while running third. That allowed Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari to take the final podium spot.

Button remains the favorite for the driving title but he isn’t a lock. IMHO he will win, but narrowly.
