Button tells critics to 'go and race elsewhere'
27 March 2014 – Jenson Button says any driver unhappy with the state of Formula 1 should "go and race something else".
In the wake of Sebastian Vettel's criticism over the sound of the sport's new turbocharged engines, and fears also being expressed about intense fuel-saving, Button reminded drivers that it is their choice to compete.
"Go and race something else if you are not happy," said the McLaren driver ahead of the Malaysian Grand Prix.
"As drivers we don't have an opinion of where the cars are in terms of the sound and feel. When you cross the finish line first you have won a Grand Prix. You don't care what it sounds like or what it looks like.
"[When you win] you have beaten the best in the world and that is all you care about."
