Jenson Button forced out from the Korean Grand prix race, following Sauber’s Kamui Kobayashi collide him at turn 3 on opening lap.

Button made a good start in the race, following retirement he told BBC Sport that, Perez made a late braking at turn 1 and he touch him, but unfortunately his team-mate spoil the Button’s race day turn 3.

“I think you might have missed something out there, about what I said,” Button told BBC Sport, having been heard calling Kobayashi an ‘idiot’ over team radio. “It’s like the race is two corners long…yeah.

“I got a really good start and was able to pass both Mercedes. I was then on the inside of Rosberg, braking for the corner and Sergio brakes really late; he didn’t hit me but he hit the car in front and broke something off the back.”

“I had to run wide and push Nico (Rosberg) off the circuit so we didn’t collide. We were having a good race down the back straight, quite fun, Saubers all over the back of us.”

“I don’t know what happened then…I braked and saw a Sauber climbing all over the back of me. It’s a long race here and a race of opportunities as well. It’s a great race with this long DRS zone, so it’s surprising that people are driving like that. No, definitely not. I’m going to enjoy myself over the next few races, but points for the team were very important today.”
