Formula One News » Bernie Ecclestone thinks Button will benefit from Hamilton departure

F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone believes Lewis Hamilton’s switch to Mercedes will be good for McLaren driver Jenson Button.

“Maybe we will see that their ‘second driver’ will not really be second driver – that he is as good as everybody believes,” Bernie Ecclestone told the official Formula 1 website.

“I think it will be good for Jenson Button too, as he will now feel that he is in charge, whereas before he might have thought that he was ‘number two’. Now he is ‘number one’ and we will very likely see a different Jenson. That might be good for him. Perhaps.”

    Good luck Button, but Hamilton you in my opinion are still the best and most exciting driver out there. Lets hope Mercedes can offer you a car that reflects your talent. It is going to be another very exciting season
