Relief for Honda as Button takes fifth

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Honda finally moved ahead of Super Aguri with one round of the 2007 world championship left thanks to Jenson Button’s fifth place at Shanghai.

The Japanese manufacturer has languished behind its B-team since the Spanish Grand Prix. Button has now scored six points – all the team’s points – to move them ahead of Super Aguri.

However the team remains eighth in the constructors’ championship as Toro Rosso scored eight points, moving ahead of both outfits.

Honda would be ninth but for McLaren’s exclusion from the championship, having finished fourth last year.

Button finished eighth at Magny-Cours and Monza, as well as his fifth place today. Takuma Sato scored all of Super Aguri’s points with eighth at Catalunya and sixth at Montreal.
