Kind of an odd one but rules are rules. Button's the most experienced driver in the field too so he of all people should know that. Just a brain fade. Kvyat slowed so Button went through. Routine except that there was a red flag :p I'd say both made a mistake in that regard but Button being the more experienced shouldn't have overtaken. He did and got a 3 place drop for it.
