Jenson Button will start the European leg of the Formula One season from the front after taking a dramatic pole for the Spanish Grand Prix.

The points leader left it late to secure his place at the head of the field, starting his final lap with just seconds remaining in the session and stealing pole from Sebastian Vettel as Red Bull prepared to celebrate pole for the young German.

Vettel had to settle for second ahead of Rubens Barrichello in the second of the Brawns, with the Brazilian alongside his countryman Felipe Massa on row two.

Mark Webber and Timo Glock share row three ahead of Jarno Trulli and Fernando Alonso, while Nico Rosberg and Robert Kubica round out the top ten having lapped noticeably slower than the rest of the cars to make it through to the top ten.
