Hamilton says he won't try 'aggressive' tactics on Button

Posted By: Staff

London, June 7(ANI): McLaren's Formula One racing ace Lewis Hamilton has said that he would not barge team-mate Jenson Button on to the sidelines in his chase to recapture the world title.

Hamilton and Button had come close to each other's car during the Turkish Grand Prix, but managed to steer clear of a collision.

The comment also comes after Red Bull team-mates Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber locked wheels and crashed out of the race.

"Jenson and I both want to win, but not in an aggressive manner. The fighting won't happen with me and Jenson," The Daily Star quoted Button, as saying.

"We got a one-two in Turkey and it was a professional drive from two team-mates. You couldn't ask for more from a partnership. We are both world champions, we're both professionals and we both have a huge amount of respect for each other," he added.

The 25-year-old further reiterated that there is no frostiness between him and Button, and said he is looking ahead to the rest of the 2010 campaign.

"When I win he is happy for me and vice-versa. Jenson is a great bloke, a very supportive team-mate and he is doing a solid job. It works both ways. I have no doubts that the rest of the season will be the exactly the same," Hamilton said. (ANI)
