Button: I will have beaten Red Bull

Published

on

2009 world champion Jenson Button says that nice to finish second in Drivers Championship. Button is very confident that he will beat a Red Bull (Mark Webber).

“It’s nice to know that if I do finish second I will have beaten a Red Bull (Webber), which is good,” said Button. Sebastian has done an unbelievable job this year, but he still has a team-mate, and to beat a guy in a Red Bull is great every time.

“And when Fernando (Alonso) is in tune with his car (Ferrari), it’s great to beat him because he is super fast, and then there is also my team-mate (Lewis Hamilton) who is unbelievably quick. So yeah, it would be nice to finish in front of them in the Championship.”

“As I’ve said before, if I could get another win then that would mean so much more to me this year,” Button said.

“I’ve three already, and I’d like another in Abu Dhabi, Brazil, or maybe even both. Quite a few times this year, especially over the last few races, I have been the closest guy to Sebastian when he has won.

“We’re certainly closer now than we were this time last year at the end of the season.

“We’re much stronger at the moment, we’re in a good place right now, which is a positive. We’re still not quite as good as the Red Bulls, but they’re not a big chunk ahead of us. It’s very, very close.

“But when they get into the lead they don’t make any mistakes, so it’s tricky.”
