Button: It was totally my fault

Button: It was totally my fault

Jenson Button has absolved Narain Karthikeyan of all blame, saying only he is responsible for their lap 15 tangle at Sepang.

Second at the restart after a 50-minute rain delay, Button pitted for intermediate tyres and found himself behind Narain Karthikeyan on the track.

The Brit, quicker than the HRT driver, closed the gap only to close too much and hit the back of the HRT.

The impact broke Button's front wing and he was forced to pit for repairs, dropping him well down the order.

Button attempted to work his way back into the points but just couldn't find a way through the field and finished a lowly P14.

"It was totally my fault," the

"I couldn't do anything but hit him and after that my race just spiralled out of control. Everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong.

"All I can do is laugh - it was so bad."

"I won't be looking at any of the footage of this race. I just think it was one of those races that sometimes happen.

"We'll put it behind us and move on in China."
