Jenson Button celebrated his 200th Formula One start with a victory at the Hungarian Grand Prix, while Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel stretched his commanding lead in the championship with a second-place finish in a wet race.

Button was steadiest in the constant drizzle at the Hungaroring circuit to secure his 11th career victory, with the McLaren driver finishing 3.5 seconds in front of Vettel.

Fernando Alonso of Ferrari was third ahead of McLaren's Lewis Hamilton, who led for most of the race but dropped back due to five pit stops and a drive-though penalty.

Mark Webber was fifth to stay closest in the standings to his Red Bull teammate, who now leads by 85 points.
