Cannot take too much credit, Vettel’s struck it lucky at Ferrari – Button

Malaysia Formula One Grand Prix
Veteran F1 driver Jenson Button agrees that Vettel cannot take too much credit for turning Ferrari into an immediate winner after his Red Bull switch.

“He has definitely lucked into a situation, I would say,” said the McLaren-Honda driver.

“It is one of those situations which sometimes works out for you, for example (Daniel) Ricciardo was overtaken by his new team-mate (Daniil Kvyat), and lapped by his ex-team-mate (Vettel) on the same lap.

“Who would have thought that at the end of last year, so sometimes you do luck into a situation.”

Alonso, however, insists he has no regrets about leaving Ferrari, even though Vettel is now driving a winning car that could contractually have been his in 2015.

“When I saw Mercedes win by half a minute in Australia,” he is quoted by Spain’s El Confidencial, “I was very clear about my decision.” (Images © Ferrari)
