Formula One: Jenson Button ready to put foot down
Jenson Button is aware he has to adopt an aggressive approach for the rest of the Formula One season if he is to retain his title.
Lying 22 points behind championship leader Mark Webber and 17 adrift of team-mate Lewis Hamilton, Button is relishing his role of hunter this season.
“It's a great feeling, it really is,” Button said ahead of this weekend's race in Singapore. “If you'd have said to me last year, if I'd been 10 points behind, ‘you're attacking for the last five races’, I would say ‘no, I'm not, because I don't have a car to do that’.
“But this year I do. I've a very competitive car, and although the next race will be more tricky for us, I'm attacking and it's exciting.”
