Australian Grand Prix

Spain's Fernando Alonso won an incident-packed Australian Grand Prix on Sunday to extend his lead in the Formula One world championship to 14 points.

Britain's Jenson Button set the fastest time in a dramatic final qualifying session on Saturday to claim pole position.

Button had lapped Melbourne's Albert Park circuit in one minute, 25.229 seconds to capture his third career pole and Honda's first in 38 years.
