The 2013 Formula One season may have been one to forget for Jenson Button as the British driver has failed to finish any higher than fifth throughout the course of the year due to the pace of the McLaren MP4-28 car. However, in a career of ups and downs, it is nothing new for the former world champion although both he and McLaren will be keen on bouncing back in 2014 with the new raft of regulations ahead of Honda’s return to the sport in 2015.
Talking to NBC Sports’ Will Buxton ahead of this weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix, Button spoke about his love for the race in Japan, his team’s performance this season and his leadership style.
