Button blasts Schumacher for ruthless Italian Grand Prix track tactics

September 12, 2011 - London

British 2009 Formula One champion Jenson Button has slammed veteran racer Michael Schumacher for his ruthless track tactics in a bruising Italian Grand Prix yesterday.

Button, who finished second to Sebastian Vettel, was critical of Schumacher's driving as he swerved to block Button's McLaren team-mate Lewis Hamilton during their battle for the third spot.

"I had such a good run on Michael and came on him so fast that he couldn't move a lot. It would have been very dangerous. But with Lewis, he was moving across to the left and then to the right, which I don't think was all that bright," The Sun quoted Button, as saying.
