F1: Jenson Button Happy to Pair with Alonso

Jenson Button says he is happy to have Fernando Alonso as his teammate in McLaren.


Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso are both F1 world champions. However, unlike Button, who is amiable and easy to get along with, Alonso is often found to be difficult to share a team with. Notably, he had an acrimonious year at McLaren in 2007 with 2014 world champion Lewis Hamilton, and at Ferrari, the Spaniard humbled two consecutive Ferrari teammates, Felipe Massa and KimiRaikkonen.


Nevertheless, McLaren boss Ron Dennis notes that Alonso has been more mature than he was in 2007, saying that Alonso has not come to McLaren demanding a clear number one status this time.


Dennis revealed: “He said 'equality, I accept equality'.”


As for Jenson Button, he insisted that he was more than happy to have such a competitive driver as Alonso to be his teammate.


Button said: “I think every driver wants a competitive teammate.


“It's always good to see what the other guy can do, their strengths and weaknesses, and also to work with someone as experienced as Fernando.


“He's a double world champion and has been around almost as long as me, driving for many different teams so I think it's a huge benefit to us.


“I've always said I want the best drivers next to me, that I would love to have Fernando as my teammate and here we are -- it's a good partnership and I'm sure we'll work well together.”


Well, it is true that so far the two world champions seem to have enjoyed each other’s company. And Briton Button once said that Alonso just had the same feeling about the car as he had, so that the team would find it easier to develop the car.
