London, Oct 20(ANI): Formula One world champion Jenson Button has said that the Brawn team is not a one-hit wonder and vowed to become the first Brit to retain his F1 title.
Previously there have been ten British world champions, including Lewis Hamilton, who have failed to hold on to their title.
"We will enjoy this like you cannot believe. But, this team is not a one-hit wonder, that's for sure. What I really want to do is successfully defend the title - to do that would be exceptional," The Sun quoted Button, as saying.
"We have already worked hard on preparing next year's car so there is no doubt this team will stay strong. Some people don't expect us to challenge next year. Well, sorry, I don't agree. You will see the likes of Ferrari, McLaren and Red Bull at the front - and you will see Brawn GP as well," he added.
Button also quashed reports, which had claimed that following his victory he could move to some other racing team for a higher salary.
"It's not the money, it's being with a team that wins," Button said.
Meanwhile, owner of the Brawn GP team, Ross Brawn, said that his team would have to work hard during the 2010 season to prove that their championship win was not a freak accident.
"It will be tough to top this, but now we have to prove it was no fluke. I told the team 'the next challenge, guys, is to show this is not some fortunate freak because there were certain regulations changes at the start of the season - but because we're here to stay," Button said. (ANI)
