The best quotes of Jenson Button

A former Formula 1 driver, a world champion Jenson Button. We will try to bring his best quotes…

 

Resting for me is fitness training.

 

I have made lots of mistakes in terms of contracts and spending money when I shouldn’t have spent money.

 

To understand the intensity of driving an F1 car, you have to be in it. When you’re driving a 750hp machine at 200mph, the noise and the vibrations are incredible. The G-force when you take big corners is like someone trying to rip your head off. You hit the brakes, and it feels as if the skin is being pulled off your body.

 

When you’re in a car which can win every race, or fight for a win every race, that is pressure.

 

It is such a special feeling to win a grand prix.

 

You look back and you remember the good, the bad and the ugly.

 

To drive an F1 car you have to be a little mad. On the morning of a race there’s a mix of excitement and fear. If it’s a wet track, then it’s worse as you’re not in control most of the time, which is the thing all drivers fear the most.

 

The fast, flowing parts, the high-speed corners, that’s where a Formula One car is at its best – changes of direction, pulling high g-forces left and right.

 

I need to develop a car and engineer a car in a position that feels comfortable for me, and I don’t think anyone can do a better job than I can in that position. The problem for me is if I can’t get the car there I do struggle more than some.

 

I think as a 20-year-old you expect life to always be easy. You get given a good hand and the chance to race in Formula One. You think the driver can make the difference, can make up for everything else within the team. But that is not the case. You are racing in such a competitive sport so that doesn’t happen.

 

It doesn’t matter who wins if I don’t. I only care if I win. I’m jealous of anyone else who wins.

 

I felt confident at 24, but I am a better driver now.
