Button says next season would be his best chance to win F1 title
London: McLaren’s ace driver, Jensen Button has claimed he is very excited this year and believes this season would be his best chance to win a Formula One championship title. The Brit is confident he can take up the challenge of leading the team in the absence of Lewis Hamilton this year after unveiling McLaren’s new charger in Woking. Button feels he can become a two times champion this season and it was not because he has rookie Sergio Perez stepping into Hamilton’s big shoes. Button said he is pretty damn excited about this year, more excited than any time since coming into the sport in 2000, adding it’s strange, maybe it’s because he knows the direction they are taking with the car or it’s because it’s a fresh start and a new teammate. The former champion added he would have felt the same even if Hamilton were here because he has more experience with the team. Button won three Grand Prix races last year in what was arguably the best car on the grid and he is convinced this year’s will be even better.
