Button delighted with victory

“I speak on behalf of everyone at Vodafone McLaren Mercedes when I say how delighted we are that he was able to win here today, thereby book-ending his 2012 season with a magnificent victory to go with his season-opening win in Melbourne,” he said. “He also won in fine style at Spa, of course.

“And here's one for the train-spotters: Jenson has now scored more podium places in the three seasons he's driven for Vodafone McLaren Mercedes [25] than he'd scored in the 10 seasons he'd driven for his previous teams [24].

“So there are many reasons for us to be cheerful today. We've won the season's last two grands prix, both wins the result of our car's sheer pace, and that achievement gives us an extremely solid platform from which to develop our 2013 car over the next few months in readiness for the new season.”

@Taipan Well, faster or not, there's one thing that not even the Hamilton fans can deny - Button is certainly much smarter than Hamilton! Next time I'm a bit short on cash I'll just pop down to the bookies and bet the house that next time it rains Hamilton will make the wrong choice of tire. Money in the bank!

Great drive today Jenson. I enjoyed his battles win Hamilton. He deserved the win as he drove a very intelligent race and kept his times consistent during the shower on slicks. Glad he ended the season on a high. @Brian maybe you should get the 2011 season review and watch Canada.
