Jenson Button hopes to be first Briton to retain F1 title

Jenson Button

It has only been done 8 times before and never been done by a Briton, but its Jenson Button’s ambition to be the first ever Briton to win consecutive formula one driver championships. Last year Lewis Hamilton had the chance to achieve the same but couldn’t as the Brawn GP cars outclassed all others giving Jenson Button a lucky break from an otherwise almost over career.

However this year he is in a much humbler car the McLaren 2010 challenger which is quick but doesnt have an obvious advantage over every other car on the grid. We see these Brits (Lewis Hamilton) and now Jenson can talk the talk, but can they walk the walk 😛

Jenson Button heads to this weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix with a victory back in Melbourne.

“It would be an incredible achievement to win back-to-back titles with two different teams. As a champion, you want to retain your title; only 30 per cent of drivers do it. But it’s never easy, especially fighting against these exceptional drivers,”

“You always think the title might be on but it’s a long season. We don’t come away from Australia thinking we can win the next race in Malaysia on Sunday and it will be easy. It’s not like that,”

Jenson Button was quoted as saying.
