Button out to challenge for victory

By on Saturday, November 24, 2012

Jenson Button has said that he is out to challenge team mate Lewis Hamilton for victory.

Button qualified in second place, fractionally behind Hamilton, with the two lining up as team mates for the final time in Brazil.

"We’re there to win the grand prix as I think every driver it, unless it’s team-mates fighting for the world championship. So, we both want to win the race tomorrow, that’s the aim for both of us", he said.

"So we’ll see what we can do. The car seems to be working very well in the dry, our long-run pace is pretty good, but as you said, there’s a massive chance of rain tomorrow and that just throws it up in the air for us, it’s quite exciting for two people, their stress levels are gong to be through the roof", he added.

"But for us starting near the front it’s hopefully going to be a very exciting race. We just have to hope that the rain level is OK for us to
actually race. That’s always the worry here in Interlagos".
