Brawn-Mercedes driver Rubens Barrichello won the FIA Formula One 2009 Telefónica Grand Prix of Europe at the street circuit, Valencia, Spain. It became his first victory since 2004 Chinese GP.

Brazilian lead the race after a McLaren team delay on the second pit-stop of Lewis Hamilton, when they changed tyres to different one as required by Formula One sporting regulations. Hamilton finished on the back of "Rubinho".

Podium was closed by Kimi Räikkönen on his KERS-equipped Ferrari, chased by the other Finn Heikki Kovalainen (McLaren) and Nico Rosberg (Williams-Toyota)

Fernando Alonso scored three points for Renault on his home soil and the championship leader Jenson Button only 7th. Robert Kubica closed the top eight for BMW Sauber.

Red Bull team didn't score any points as Sebastian Vettel got an engine failure, forcing German to retire, and Mark Webber finished only ninth.

Surprizing result for Force India, as Adrian Sutil and Giancarlo Fisichella beat both Toyota drivers.

Jenson Button still leads the Championship with 72 points with Rubens Barrichello as close as 18 points. Mark Webber with 51.5 points shoot ahead of Sebastian Vettel by 4 and a half points. Brawn team tops Constructors' standings with 126 points. Red Bull Racing is 27.5 points behind with Ferrari, McLaren and Toyota teams still chasing the leaders.
