Brazil 2009 Pandemonium on the First Lap!

Button is up to P9 after the most wild opening lap I've ever seen!  Sutil, Trulli and HWMNBN were all involved in a wild accident that saw Trulli try a suicidal pass of Sutil and fail, taking them both out.  Trulli's Toyota went left into the wall, Sutil went right onto the grass and, skidding out of control, gathered the Renault when his car re-entered the racing line.

Meanwhile, both McLarens needed to hit the pits for tires or a new nose, as did Kimi Raikkonen who tried a little too hard to get past Sutil at the start.  He succeeded, but wound up with a flat and a broken nose.  And that's when the SECOND incident began.

Kovaleininninnie pulled out of his pit stall too early, ripping the fuel hose out and dragging it down the pit lane, fuel spilling out everywhere... just as Kimi pulled out.  The Ferrari drove right into the fuel spray, which hit the hot exhaust pipes.  FWOOM, fireball.  It did no damage, but was frightening to say the least.

The race has restarted, and Button has passed TWO cars in one lap; he's up to 7th! 

This looks like a fun one, folks!
