Hamilton's attempt to become the first British driver to win back-to-back titles was effectively over long before Button had won six of the first seven races this season to put the Frome driver within touching distance of glory.

McLaren's Hamilton rallied in the second half of the season, claiming two wins of his own, suggesting he could well challenge Button next time out.
Button, 29, said: "There's a lot of variables. That's the way Formula One is. Who would have thought it would be so difficult for us to win after the first seven races? "It's the way Formula One is, it's such a competitive sport. Now you have 10 teams that are fighting for wins and it's the first time we've seen that in Formula One.
"If I'm in a competitive car and Lewis is in a competitive car next year, I think it will be a very exciting season for Formula One and especially the British public."
Button believes Britain should be proud of its achievements in the sport in recent times.
He said: "Having two world champions back to back, it hasn't happened in 40 years and I don't know how many other countries have been able to achieve that.
"We should be very proud of all the work that has been put into the sport from all around the country - the drivers, the mechanics, the engineers."
With Button yet to sign a new contract at Brawn, just where he will be when he attempts his defence is not yet clear. But he insists he intends to stay put and will not be lured away simply by a big-money contract.
He said: "For me the most important thing in my career has always been to be in a great car and this year is the first year I've really been in that position.
"I want to continue achieving in the sport.
"I'm not one of these drivers who's going to be looking for a new team who can pay me a big amount of money, that's not what I'm about."
