McLaren's Jenson Button has said if he had the 'massive' 85-point advantage that Sebastian Vettel currently enjoys in the battle for the F1 2011 drivers' championship, then he 'wouldn't be feeling any pressure at all'.
Button took his second victory of the year in Hungary prior to the summer break and while he maintains Vettel is still beatable, he knows it won't be easy and that the Red Bull man is in the ideal position.
“He has a massive lead. He has no need to take risks and he's driving a competitive car,” Button told ITV-F1.com
. “He's facing an eight-race World Championship and he's starting it with an 80-point lead. That's a massive gap.
“And he's still in one of the quickest cars. That's the best position possible. Red Bull has great resources, so it's a different situation to the one I found myself in with Brawn [when I won the title in 2009]. And if I had the lead he's got, I wouldn't be feeling any pressure at all!
“He's already won the World Championship [once], which is very important. You don't feel the pressure so much, when you've already done it. It's not the pressure other people put on you, it's the pressure you put on yourself to win.
“I don't think any driver who wins a World Championship suddenly isn't interested in fighting for another.
“I still would love to win another World Championship and that's why I am here,” Button summed-up.
