The Brit deeply aware sport can play a significant role in helping to restore hope and normality to communities that were torn apart by the earthquake and tsunami in last March.

“Japan is a place very close to my heart,” said Button. Obviously, it’s going to be a very emotional experience for me to be racing in Japan for the first time since the events of last March.

“I’m very proud the Formula One world championship will put Japan on the world’s sporting stage next weekend. While the country is collectively rebuilding itself, I’m deeply aware sport can play a significant role in helping to restore hope and normality to communities that were torn apart by the earthquake and tsunami.

“For everyone who follows Formula One, I hope we can put on a great race to bring further strength to the people of Japan. And to everyone in Japan, I say: ganbatte (do your best).”

The McLaren’s Driver Jenson Button, get pleasure from a win, two seconds and a third in the last four races, feels McLaren should not be ruled out in their bid to deny Vettel the race win at least.

“In the last few races we’ve shown we have extremely good pace and that we’ve been the team most able to take the fight to Red Bull,” said Button. On paper it’s a circuit that will suit the Red Bulls, particularly in the high-speed sweeps that make up the first sector.

“But I certainly don’t think people should under-estimate our package. We showed at Spa we have a car that’s very effective in high-speed corners.

“We’ve also improved our straight-line speed and we have a more efficient rear-wing for qualifying, so I think we’re feeling positive about the weekend.” He added.
