Button: Alonso would be an ideal team-mate

Published

2009 world champion Jenson Button says that he would be exciting having Fernando as a team-mate. But only if having Lewis Hamilton as a team-mate wasn’t a choice. 2012 Formula 1 opening race winner Jenson Button think that the double time world champion would make an ideal team-mate given his huge skill.

Even as the rumours in the Formula 1 campaign, the duo almost became team-mates at Ferrari with the Italian stable reportedly keen to bring Button in as Felipe Massa’s replacement. But instead, Button committed his long-term future to McLaren.

“Lewis is extremely quick, we see that all the time, and it’s really exciting having a team-mate like that,” the 32-year-old is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail. It’s tough on some days, but other days it’s great, and it’s a real challenge, which I like. But if Lewis wasn’t in Formula One, for example, I personally feel it would be exciting having Fernando as a team-mate.

“Fernando is extremely talented, he is a double world champion, he is fast,” added Button. “Is he the fastest in the sport? Probably not, and he would probably say the same, but he is very intelligent.”

Button shares some common with the Spaniard Alonso, with regards to the way they handle the job.

“In some ways we’re similar, in other ways we are definitely not. One of the ways in which we are is in terms of wanting a team of people around us. We need that support to really achieve. So yeah, he’d be exciting to work with, to work with and to be an enemy, which I’m sure he would be.”
