It was a enjoyable race – Button



Aug.28 – 2009 world champion Jenson Button finished third on the podium in Belgium.

The British speedy Jenson Button starting from P13, and done third place, Button says it was a case of what might have been had the start not been so chaotic.

Lots of incidents through the first corner at Spa Sunday race, Button hit from all sides with Force India’s Paul di Resta hitting the back of his car and another rival’s front wing clipping the front of his car and even wipes out his mirror.

“I think if I had stayed in 13th after the start it would have been a lot easier to challenge these guys (the two Red Bull drivers),” said Button. Turn 1 was mayhem caused by the guys up front. (Paul) di Resta hit my rear wing, damaged my rear wing, half the endplate was gone and driving to Eau Rouge someone’s rear wing came off and went through my front wing and took the mirror off.

“It was a bit scary. The guys said keep going until lap five, we did – then put options on and did rest of race with them. It was a enjoyable race. You’re always going to say what could have been, but it’s a good finish to get on the podium after Seb drove into me last year!”

“So it was a case of what might have been, but, all in all, from starting 13th it’s good to have finished on the podium.” Button added.
