Button says not among those who won't retain their F-1 title

Posted By: Staff

London, Jan.20 (ANI): Formula One champion Jenson Button has discovered that only 30 per cent of sporting world champions retain their titles, and does not believe that he belongs to this category.

"No, I'm happy to be 30. It's not a problem. I thought I would have a trim because I have a younger teammate now. I need to look younger," the Daily Express quoted him, as saying.

Button was in London to launch the Vodafone iPhone, and has been hard at work on the team's sophisticated simulator, getting to know his engineers.

"I found that 70 per cent of sportsmen win the world championship but can't achieve that the next season," said Button.

"It's about working out why 30 per cent do and mentally being ready for the new season," he added. (ANI)
