Button: Hamilton’s Mercedes move is wrong decision

Published

on

Unfortunately Jenson Button forced to retire from the Korean Grand Prix, when Kobayashi crashed him at turn 3 on the opening lap of the race. Hamilton struggled with suspension failure and he just finished with one point, consequences were they fall down from the second place on the constructors’ championship, now behind the Ferrari.

Lewis Hamilton already confirmed that to join Mercedes in 2013, following Button will join with Sergio Perez for next season.

The Mercedes history was not good, they are wins only one race during the season 2010-present, since they are returning to Formula 1 having taken over Brawn GP. Button personally says that he don’t think Hamilton’s Mercedes move is right decision and also he added that they will continue a good friendship.

“The team will give Lewis everything they can because Lewis can give the team chances of winning races, as I can, the team care about the drivers, but also they care about winning. There will not be any change in this team at all in the way we go racing with two drivers.” Button is quoted by The Guardian.

“It is amazing how opinionated people are with this team and none of it is true. The atmosphere in the team is fantastic. As far as I can see with Lewis, he is focused and wants to win races. Nothing has changed, it is just the view of a few people with a wide audience, and they need to get their facts straight.”

He added, “He has chosen to go his own way at the end of the year. It is his decision, although I personally don’t think it is the right decision,” he said, adding that the two drivers still maintained a solid working relationship. “We are not close friends. We work together and have a good working relationship,” he said.
