Vettel is already won the World Championship – Button

Published

on

Aug.14 – 2009 world champion Jenson Button thinks that reigning world champ Sebastian Vettel is already won the World Championship. And he still massive points-lead in the standings.

Eight races remaining 2011 season, Sebastian Vettel has 85-points lead over his next competitor, Red Bull Racing team-mate Mark Webber on second, and McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton is a further three points off the pace.

“He’s already won the World Championship, which is very important. You don’t feel the pressure so much, when you’ve already done it,” Button told the Independent.

“It wasn’t easy for me to win consistently by the end of the year but he still has a massive lead. He has no need to take risks and he’s driving a competitive car. Red Bull has great resources, so it’s a different situation to the one I found myself in with Brawn. And if I had the lead he’s got, I wouldn’t be feeling any pressure at all!

“He’s facing an eight-race World Championship and he’s starting it with an 80-point lead! That’s a massive gap. And he’s still in one of the quickest cars. That’s the best position possible.”

As for his own aim, while it may not be possible this season, Button says he wants a second title to add the one he claimed with Brawn GP.

“It’s not the pressure other people put on you, it’s the pressure you put on yourself to win. I still would love to win another World Championship and that’s why I am here. I don’t think any driver who wins a World Championship suddenly isn’t interested in fighting for another.”
