Button apologises following "weird" race

NEWS STORY
25/03/2012

Just seven days after his convincing win in Melbourne, Jenson Button felt the need to apologise to his team after a nightmare performance at Sepang.

Normally a sure-thing in such conditions, the Englishman was all at sea today, the low point being when he crashed into the back of Narain Karthikeyan's HRT.

"I blew what could have been some good points and I have to say sorry to the team," he told reporters at the end of the race, having finished fourteenth. "I am amazed that I'm still third in the championship.

"I can only smile. It was a terrible day," he continued. "It was looking so good. I was picking people off, but I hit the brakes and locked the rears. I tried to slow the car down going into the corner but I could not stop myself from hitting Karthikeyan, who is in the corner longer than most people.

"But it was totally my fault," he admitted. "I found a car in my way when I totally out-broke myself and I lost the front wing and it took a long time to change it. When I came back out, I could not do anything in the race. It was the weirdest race. This is an awful race for me. It couldn't have been any worse. Hopefully that's my bad luck and my bad race gone."
