July.01 – 2009 world champion Jenson Button is keen to record an individual best result at Silverstone next weekend. Button admits it would be a ‘dream come true’ to be successful in front of his home fans, a feat achieved by his existing team-mate Lewis Hamilton among heavy rain in 2008.
“My best finish at Silverstone is fourth, which I earned in 2004 and last year, after a great charge through the field after a disappointing performance in qualifying,” Button commented. “Although it’s a place that’s not been too kind to me, I’m really looking forward to this year’s race: we raced on the new layout last year, but this will be the first time we’ve experienced the new circuit as it’s really meant to be.
“With a new start-line, a new first corner and an all-new pit and paddock complex, the new facilities should be fantastic, and I think they’ll confirm Silverstone as one of the best circuits in the world. Still, it’s going to be strange sitting on the grid with the prospect of going flat into Abbey as the first corner!, As always, we’ll see once again that the British fans are some of the most passionate, knowledgeable and loyal in the whole world. It would mean everything to me to be able to win my home grand prix – that would be my dream come true. Whatever happens, it will be a great weekend.”
