Whitmarsh graduated from university with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1980, and started work at British Aerospace (now BAE Systems) as a structural analysis engineer at its has warned Jenson Button Jenson Alexander Lyons Button, often called Jense, (born 19 January, 1980) is an English Formula One racing driver. He currently competes for the Honda Racing F1 team. He won his first Grand Prix in Hungary, on August 6 2006 after 113 races. not to blow his Formula One world title bid by being too cautious.
Two years ago McLaren were overaggressive o·ver·ag·gres·sive
Aggressive to an excessive degree.
over·ag·gres and Lewis Hamilton missed out by a point, while last year they were too defensive at Interlagos and nearly lost the title again.
Hamilton managed to take the crown but only after being forced to make a dramatic overtaking move on Timo Glock in the final corner of the last lap.
With two races to go Button is in a strong position to win the title as the British driver is 14 points up on Brawn GP team-mate Rubens Barrichello and 16 ahead of Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel.
But the 29-year-old can't afford to tread too carefully today in Brazil after Barrichello took pole position for his home Grand Prix.
Button has his work cut out after he trailed home in 14th place in the rain-hit qualifying session while Vettel is in 16th spot.
And Whitmarsh believes Button will now have to walk a fine line between safety and aggression.
He said: "In 2007 our team made some mistakes when we went flat out when we didn't need to. Lewis was new at that time and we should have guided him better.
"So after what happened there was enormous pressure on Lewis.
"In the final Grand Prix in Brazil we took a defensive strategy and it turned into a difficult race.
"With two races left this time Jenson doesn't have to go all out and try to win but he can't be too defensive either.
"If he does the job normally, with the car he has and with his points advantage he should win the title so he shouldn't be too cautious."
Elsewhere on the grid, Red Bull's Mark Webber is in second spot behind Barrichello while Force India's Adrian Sutil is third.
