Jenson Button on crashes, his Brawn fairytale and the rules of the road

Few would expect a Formula One legend to call for less speed

Jenson Button won the 2009 Formula One World Championship while driving for Brawn GP and though he has retired from F1, now races in Japanese Super GT Series, and retains a love for motorsport.

With less than a month to go until the 2020 F1 season starts, we sat down with Button to discuss a variety of issues, from his own career and the fairytale of winning the F1 title with Brawn in the constructors first season in the sport, to whether Lewis Hamilton is a good guy.

Button also discusses driving in general, and gives us his own often surprising views on the state of driving in the United Kingdom right, as well as why he favours lower speed limits all around.
