Button: I hope Austin is better than Suzuka


As the United States Grand Prix approaches, McLaren-Honda driver Jenson Button is looking forward to being not only in Austin, but the US in general.

Button reminisced on the fond memories he has had in the past in America, noting the atmosphere and fans as being a big part of the fun the US Grand Prix boasts.

However, while he looks forward to this weekend’s race, the Brit wants to redeem himself after a poor performance in Suzuka.

“I’m looking forward to heading back to Austin,” said the 2009-World-Champion.

“I’ve been spending more and more time in the States recently and Austin is a city with passionate fans that really love their racing.

“The atmosphere downtown is really relaxed and we usually take the opportunity to sample the famous Texan cuisine in one or two of the restaurants over the course of the weekend.

“You really need to prepare the car for everything! For a driver it’s great fun and I hope we enjoy a better result there than in Suzuka.”
