Don’t ask Jenson Button about his points-deficit to Sebastian Vettel, especially if you’re implying his title challenge is already over.

In the wake of Sunday’s Chinese GP, Button found himself 47 points behind the Red Bull driver and probably still smarting after his three-stop strategy proved to be the wrong route.

The Brit was asked whether he was aware of the massive deficit and made it quite clear that it wasn’t an issue for him.

“No, I haven’t seen it. That’s not of interest at the moment,” the Mirror reports Button as having said.

“Getting the best out of what we have is the most important thing.”

Button was then pushed as to whether his season was already on its way out – and he wasn’t all that happy with the journalist’s opinion.

“What’s the point in saying, ‘It’s slipped away?’

“We might as well f***ing go home as say that. I mean, J***s C****t guys, let’s not make it too negative.”
