Hamilton Tips Button For 2009 Title
Lewis Hamilton has tipped fellow British driver Jenson Button to win the 2009 F1 title for Brawn GP.
Hamilton, the current reigning world champ reckons that Jenson has what it takes to continue his good form with Brawn GP right until the end of the season. Button has won 4 out of 5 races completed this season so far.
Lewis, 24, also reckons that Button will win the Monaco Grand Prix next weekend.
“I think Jenson’s got a great chance, a great shot at it so I wish him all the best,” Hamilton told Reuters in an interview.
“I think if I were to wish anyone (else) to win, it would be him.”
He added: “I think it’s a great story, so I wish him all the luck. They (Brawn) are going to have a great car there (in Monaco) so to beat them will be very tough. I don’t think he has ever won there … it will be a very special one for him to add to his list.”
