Button looking forward to 'most exciting' US Grand Prix
McLaren ace driver Jensen Button has said he hopes this weekend's race in Texas will be the start of something big, and added that he is very excited ahead to drive on the purpose-built Circuit of the Americas in Austin.
Austin will host the first U.S. Grand Prix since 2007 on Sunday -- the penultimate race of the season, and crucial in the drivers' title fight between Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso.
"Racing in Austin is one of the most exciting grands prix. It's a purpose-built circuit for Formula One ... it's very important for us to make this work in the States," CNN quoted Button, as saying.
"Five years ago we raced, it wasn't the best race but it was on a circuit which wasn't built for Formula One cars, but for IndyCar and NASCAR," he added.
