Button says wins are possible in 2009

User Rating: / 0
Jenson Button believes Honda's 2009 machine will be quick enough to allow him to fight for podiums again, and perhaps even another race victory.

Speaking at the Japanese manufacturer's traditional end-of-season 'Honda Racing Thanks Day' at Motegi earlier this week, Button thanked the fans for their continued support through the team's difficult season, and reassured the Japanese crowd that Honda's recovery was about to commence.

Honda was one of the first teams to switch all its attention to the radical 2009 regulations, and with this head-start and the presence of Ross Brawn as team boss, Button is confident that things will get better next year.

"I'd like to say a massive thank you for all your support," he told the 25,000 Japanese fans at the event.

"The last two years have been very difficult for all of us, but I think we have a very strong team and we have a real passion for racing, so things will come good for us.

"I've already seen what is happening with the car for next year, and it looks very positive.

"It feels more like 2006, when I got three podiums and I won my first race.

"So it's all very positive, and I'm hoping to get some more wins next year."

Button joined stars of Honda's motorcycle racing, Japanese motorsport, and IndyCar programmes at the event.

He demonstrated the 2008 Honda Formula 1 car around the Motegi track's high-speed oval, tried out Honda's latest road cars, and pitted his RA108 against MotoGP race winner Dani Pedrosa's Honda motorcycle.

Although rain later caused some of the festivities to be abandoned, it didn't deter wet weather specialist Button from returning to the track to keep the fans entertained.

"I look forward to coming to the Honda Racing Thanks Day every year because the Japanese fans are so passionate and supportive," he said.

"They welcome and cheer me on as much as my home British fans."
