"I clinched the title here in 2009 but lost it today. I'm still world champion, though," said Jenson Button calmly about his failed attempt to defend his crown. After the Brazilian Grand Prix, only Lewis Hamilton still has a mathematical chance of clinching the title. "Lewis can still emerge the victor, but only if some misfortune should befall the top three. It's going to be tough for him," said Button.
