BBC Sport - Jenson Button 'closed eyes' when overtaking Schumacher
I closed my eyes when overtaking Schumacher - Button
- From the section Formula 1
McLaren's Jenson Button jokingly says that he "closed his eyes" when overtaking Mercedes' Michael Schumacher during the 2011 Italian Grand Prix.
Button admitted during the drivers' news conference after the race that the move to pass the German driver was his "greatest ever".
McLaren team principle Martin Whitmarsh also talks about Button staying at the team for next year, but the two are cagey when asked when a new contract will be signed.
