London, Dec 1(ANI): Mclaren Formula One team Managing Director Jonathan Neale believes that current F1 champion Jenson Button's "hunger" will give the team extra bite next year.
Neale also said that the engineers at Woking Headquarters are excited at the prospect of running Button alongside his predecessor Lewis Hamilton.
"We know Jenson is fully capable of learning very quickly, taking things on board and absorbing information fast. In fact, we are looking forward to that hunger. He's a very smart guy and all our engineers are tremendously excited about working with two world champions next year. They'll both devour hard work," Fox Sports quoted Neale, as saying.They're a real asset for us. But, more importantly I also think they are an extremely exciting prospect for every Formula One fan," he added.
Neale further ruled out observations that Button made a mistake by signing up for McLaren, as it is seen as Hamilton's team.
"I'm absolutely convinced they'll be a fantastic and competitive partnership. The reality is they'll both bring different skill-sets to the table," Neale said.From January onwards we'll be able to very rapidly bring their wealth of knowledge and experience to bear on a number of issues, particularly during pre-season testing. In some ways, it multiplies our opportunities in a Grand Prix too," he added. (ANI)
