Hamilton insists ‘battling’ Button ‘still a deadly threat
London: Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton has warned that his troubled team-mate Jenson Button is still a deadly title threat and needs to be watched.
Button, 32, is at his lowed ebb after his fourth non-points finish in the six races and has plummeted from championship leader to eighth, marking his worst position for two-and-a-half years.
However, Hamilton backed his McLaren crony and exuded confidence in his capabilities.
“Jenson is a world champion and he is massively strong. He will bounce back. You can’t write him off for the championship because one win puts you right back up there,” a daily quoted Hamilton, as saying.
Button admitted, “I am confused and lost”.
