Cape Town - Jenson Button has dismissed suggestions
that Lewis Hamilton's primary focus is trying to beat the records set
by seven-time World Champion, Michael Schumacher.
Button, in his new role of pundit with Sky Sports, has been sharing
his early thoughts ahead of the 2019 season and has already stated his
concern for Sebastian Vettel if Charles Leclerc beats him and Red Bull
if they cannot provide Max Verstappen with a title-winning car.
Now turning his attention towards his fellow Brit and former
team-mate, Button thinks Hamilton finds his motivation from new
challenges as opposed to replacing Schumacher at the top of the record
"Knowing Lewis it's not about trying to better what Michael has done," Button told Sky Sports.
"I think when things are changing in F1 and there are new challenges, that's what he loves. That's what we all love in racing.
"It's when the challenges stop that you decide that you are going to go and do something else.
"But with the way F1 is with the regulation changes and the drivers
changing all the time, he's going to want to keep going, which is
fantastic for the sport."
