June.12 – Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team boss Martin Whitmarsh congratulating the exiting race winner Jenson Button following he fought his way through the field six times to take the Canadian GP win.
Jenson Button finished Canadian GP that included five pit stops, and one drive-through penalty for speeding behind the Safety Car and two incidents with other drivers. Jenson was involved the first incident with his team-mate Lewis Hamilton hitting the wall and retiring, while the second was with Alonso. The Ferrari driver was put out of the grand prix.
Anticlimax coming on the last Lap of the dramatic race, overtaken Sebastian Vettel and he took the chequered flag.
“What a race. Coming through six times from 21st is incredible,” Button’s McLaren team boss told the BBC. He is driving fantastically and we know he deserves it and hope everyone else does too. He just attacked and attacked and delivered a fantastic race.”
He added: “We knew he had to put pressure on Sebastian, and Sebastian made a mistake. From Jenson, that’s the stuff of champions, that’s the stuff of dreams.”
“I think Jenson was on the inside there and Fernando shut on him. I may be a bit partisan on that but I hope and believe that the stewards will make the same opinion. We’ll wait and see.”
McLaren team boss revealed he’s not hoping any penalty for Button following the stewards announced that they would investigate his incident with Fernando Alonso, which put the latter out of the race.
