Reigning Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button says that Consistency is the Key i winning the World Championships in the premier motor racing sports.
After winning the the 2nd race of the season in Australia, the race is still long to be decided and Button believes the most consistent driver will still be the one that wins.
“It is yeah, it’s still really close at the top, which is quite surprising in some ways,” Button said. “I don’t think I was the only one who thought that the new points system would reward the fastest drivers more than those who are simply more consistent. But we’ve seen in the first three races that consistency still counts for a lot. And, I’m told that the championship order at the front would still be unchanged if we were using last year’s scoring system, which is interesting.”
His team Mclaren is of the top teams in the sport and Button believes that his team McLaren has one of the most reliable packages on the grid and is confident that will put him in good stead for a challenge on the championship.
It is still a long way to go but teams are taking it step by step every race and Button is wary that other teams are getting stronger every race.
