The top most happiness of victory the word championship last November just a staging post to greater brilliance. He has won two races in a month, and get top of drivers championship list and eclipsed Fernando Alonso, Michael Schumacher, Vettel.
As Lewis Hamilton has fought from crisis to crisis, his private life in confusion, the 30-year-old across the garage has silently hit a higher gear, professionally and privately.
His girl friend lingerie model Jessica Michibata – rapid to give him a winning kiss in China – is more and more looking like ‘the one’. The forbidden word “marriage” is bandied around with no discomfort and Button has even talked about the time they will have kids. The Jenson’s dad, John, jokes with his coach Mike Muscles in the background while friend and manager Richard Goddard, who Button calls ‘the guru, takes care of business.
This is the best time of my life, no doubt, the 30-year-old told the Daily Mirror.
Yes, it’s the best time of my life. You can write that as big as you want, said Button as he prepared to jet to Thailand for a week’s break. Last year was amazing; the experience of winning six races and fighting for the championship was very special. It was always my target and I’ve won it now.
“But this year, I’ve had four races and two victories.”I also know it’s not going to be a walk in the park for the next 15 races.
“Every race we go to, it’s going to be tough. It’s not like last year when in the first three races we had a better car than everyone else. We’re chasing down the Red Bulls but we’re leading the championship, so it’s quite weird. “But it’s a nice position to be in. Whatever happens in my career at McLaren now, I think I’ve had a lot of fun already.”‘Whatever happens’ means that lurking presence across the garage.
“Lewis is like a pit bull isn’t he?” said Button. “We are going to be pushing each other very hard this year. That’s what I live for.”
