One race should not define my career – Button



At the end of the race, Jenson Button did a few donuts to celebrate a solid fifth place. Is this the final time we’ll see the 2009 world champion compete at the highest level of motorsport?

It’s been quite a finish to the year for the McLaren driver, who has finished in the top five in four of the last five races. He finishes eighth in the championship with 126 points, more than double that of his team-mate Kevin Magnussen.

Jenson Button has just given a hugely emotional interview to BBC reporter, Lee McKenzie where he insists that he “hasn’t finished yet” but there’s almost an air of resignation that it is done and dusted.

“It was tough,” says Button, who finished fifth. “I don’t think we had much pace but made the best of what we had.

“That was as good as it was going to be – that’s all you can ask. I don’t need to say anything to the team. The support has been unbelievable, overwhelming and hopefully I put on a good show.

“One race should not define my career or show whether I have a future in Formula 1. I’ve not been treating it like a last race. You just focus on what you are doing. I always live in the moment but for people around me there is more time for them to think.

“I haven’t finished yet! It’s been a good day for me but a much better day for my old team-mate and buddy Lewis Hamilton so congratulations.”
