Jenson Button targets close the gap between main rivals and he looking this opportunity will get in next race weekend at Silverstone for British Grand Prix.

Jenson Button is currently eighth in the drivers’ championship 62 points behind the leader Fernando Alonso. Last Grand Prix he was finished eighth position and 39 points behind his team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

“The gap to Fernando is more points than I’ve got,” Button said. “It (the gap)’s still not a lot, though. We’ve still got 12 races … Silverstone is a high speed circuit, where our strength is. Our weakness is low speed. It’s a circuit where we should be strong.”

“At least I’ve another 12 races, so although I’m a long way behind, it is still possible. But I’m not thinking about that. I’m thinking about going to my home race and driving a fast, flowing circuit which hopefully our car should work well on.”
