Damon Hill reckons Jenson Button will the one to take the fight to Sebastian Vettel as the McLaren driver has become the complete package.

After two grands prix, Button, who won the season-opening Australian GP, is third in the Drivers’ Championship on 25 points, ten less than Fernando Alonso and five behind Lewis Hamilton.

But of the trio, it is Button who Hill reckons could dethrone Vettel as the McLaren driver has the right “tools” to do so.

“It is something that comes to you after a number of years in F1,” the 1996 World Champion told The Sun.

“All the things you have learned finally come together and that is what we are seeing with Jenson.

“In his life, he is really where he wants to be right now.

“I believe in paying your dues and once you get your hands on the tools that can do the job, you don’t want to let go.”
