Button can crawl to title in Brazil

Button can crawl to title in Brazil

A season of two halves for Jenson Button
There is a river of criticism flowing towards Jenson Button at present, but the fact remains that he can stroll to the world championship in Brazil in less than a fortnight.

His critics do not like the way the Brawn driver, after a dominant start to the 2009 season, is currently crawling his way to a mathematical title triumph. Since his last victory at the Turkish Grand Prix in June, Button has scored 24 points, while Rubens Barrichello and Sebastian Vettel have racked up 36 and 40 respectively.

The Times said he will be a champion "who has not won a race for months, who has tightened up in qualifying and who is now unable to dominate his team-mate, Rubens Barrichello, a veteran of 17 seasons in the sport."

The Guardian said the Briton is waiting "in the wings" for F1's biggest prize. He now only needs a third position to claim the title regardless of what his rivals achieve in the remaining two rounds.

However, Lewis Hamilton had a slightly bigger points margin with two races to go in 2007, and still managed to lose the title to Kimi Raikkonen.

"You said it all," said Vettel after winning dominantly at Suzuka on Sunday. "It can still be done. I will keep on pushing until the end, until the last breath.

"You can ask Lewis, I think Kimi had quite a big deficit with two races to go. Everyone said to Lewis it will not be a problem just to get a couple of points, but you can see sometimes, things just don't work your way."

Under Bernie Ecclestone’s universally unpopular ‘medals’ concept, Button would have been crowned champion at the Singapore Grand Prix.
