Jenson Button has refused to discuss Sebastian Vettel’s move on him during the closing stages of the German GP, saying the “TV camera says it all”.
The McLaren driver finished third at Hockenheim on Sunday after Vettel overtook him in the DRS zone on the penultimate lap of the race.
However, Button can still claim second place as the stewards are investigating the incident as all four wheels of the German’s RB8 were off the track when he passed the McLaren.
Vettel’s Red Bull team principal Christian Horner felt afterwards that it would be “harsh” to penalise him, but Button feels replays show he was in the wrong.
“There’s nothing to say really,” Button said. “The TV camera says it all. I’d rather talk about the race.”
As for finishing third, Button was delighted to be scoring so many points again after a couple of lean races. It was the first time since the Chinese GP that he finished higher than P8.
“I had a great race out there and it is nice to be fighting at the front again,” he said.
