Malaysian GP – Thursday press conference – Pt.2

Yeah, for sure. For sure all the team - even myself - were a bit disappointed because we missed a great opportunity to score some important points but this is racing. I think it was my mistake and now we need to look forward, turn the page. I think our car is competitive at the moment, we need to keep pushing like that, keep concentrated, keep working, focused. This is going to be a new challenge for us because the track is completely different, but we need to believe in our performance and hopefully we will again be in the top ten and fighting for good places.

Q: (Anno Hecker - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)
This is a political one for the front row: last year's race in Bahrain was cancelled. We all know the reasons why; the government is still in place, in five weeks' time Formula One will race there. What are your thoughts about that?

Jenson Button:
I think for us, as you know, this is a very difficult subject and personally, from my point of view, we need to look to the FIA - for all of us - for common sense. We will go with what they have to say.

Michael Schumacher:
I'm honestly pretty relaxed to go there. From our perspective, one is obviously that we're going to be very well looked after, because they might foresee whatever and will be prepared. I've quite a few good friends over there and I'm pretty sure that for them it's a very important event and they just want to make everybody happy. If you look around the world, you probably find other places where there might be the possibility that we could have the same reasons to think about and we don't. So at the end of the day, I'm pretty sure that they're going to do their utmost and we're going to be OK.

Q: (Andrea Cremonesi - La Gazzetta dello Sport)
Jenson, I saw a picture in the newspaper - I don't know if you saw in Australia your girlfriend had a special T-shirt for you which said 'Jenson press all my buttons.' Did you see that after the race?

Jenson Button:
I actually saw the T-shirt before the race to be fair. It was just after. Yeah, it was a gift from a fan. I think someone was trying to do some publicity for their T-shirt company. She was given it as a gift as we entered the circuit. It's not mine which is quite annoying. Do I push her buttons? I think that one's a little bit too private.
