Please go Jenson
I agree with Matt James in Motorsport
News last week (September 7). Once Jenson Button has hung up his crash helmet at the end of this season, I think it would be a mistake for him to return to the grand prix cockpit.
I also think it is unwise for any driver to declare that they are going to leave the sport before the end of the season. It is tempting fate.
Button has done a lot for the sport, and has gained a huge number of fans over the years he has been in F1. But it will probably be the fairytale story of the Button and Brawn partnership in 2009 that took Jenson to the world title. It is unlikely that grand prix racing will ever see a chapter like that in its history ever again.
That, alone, stands as a stunning epitaph to Button, and he should leave it at that. Stephen Waters Via email
