Win didn’t change me – Button

Jenson Button says winning his first grand prix in Hungary this year did not change him as a driver.

After more than 100 grand prix starts and intense pressure from the British press, the 27-year-old Honda racer finally broke through in the damp Budapest race.

But Button disagrees with his father, John, who thinks the Englishman became a “more aggressive and better” driver in 2006; an opinion backed by his run of points-scoring finishes in the latter half of the season.

Jenson told ITV: “We have different views on that one.

“I think winning my first grand prix, it changes you in the way that you’ve won your first grand prix, but it doesn’t change your mentality or your way of thinking when you go into your next race at all.”
