Button promises F1 ticket holders 'electric' season
Jenson Button has claimed that the approaching Formula One season will be one of the best in years.
With Button, the current world champion, driving alongside fellow Brit and former number one Lewis Hamilton, it promises to be an exciting season.
And with F1 legend Michael Schumacher returning to the sport, it could be more competitive than ever.
Speaking about the season opener in Bahrain this weekend, said: "Looking at this race, there haven't been this many competitive drivers for a long time.
"This season should be electric for Formula One fans and being part of that is very special."
Meanwhile, teammate Hamilton said he was more determined than ever to make a success of this year's world championship after enduring a torrid time in 2009.
"This weekend is a new start for us and will be positive for me and Jenson," he said.
Qualifying for the Bahrain Grand Prix starts this Saturday (March 13th) with the race the following day.
