Jenson Button revealed he did
not want his dream grand prix to end after roaring
to an historic triumph at the Hungaroring.

you are in the lead I suppose it goes on for
ever but I was loving it. I had a 40 second

It has been amazing. The weather conditions
made the race very difficult for everyone but
coming through from 14th and winning, I couldn’t

“The strategy was fantastic and
everyone on the team has done a great job this
weekend. It is nice to see we have got a car
that can win races.
“We made a great choice on the
tyres and also on the last pit-stop. We have
been a real thinking team. We have thought hard
and we have won the race not just through speed
but through strategy.
“The team deserve it because
it has been so hard but we have finally got
here. I have got to say thanks to everyone back
in the UK because they have never lost faith
