Apart from the last lap, the final part of the play has been equally intriguing which has been the silence that has followed post the controversial defeat in Abu Dhabi from Lewis Hamilton and his camp. Although the former champion has recently become active on social media which have hinted a possible return to Formula one for the seven time world champion.

Although, Button has some other views on the topic. Button said, “this silence is not necessarily the result of the defeat against Verstappen, but all drivers need that time to unwind after such an intense battle.”

Jenson Button hopes, like everyone else, that this is just the start of the rivalry between the two heavyweights.

“One of the best drivers who has ever driven a Formula 1 car takes on one of the best drivers who has ever driven a Formula 1 car. A battle like that doesn’t happen often in Formula 1, so hopefully, we’ll get to see a lot more of that in 2022, ” Button said, as reported by gpblog.

We can all agree with the veteran that a season like last one was unheard of in Formula 1 or any other sport. This brought about the kind of excitement which is usually experienced in sports like Football. But this could kick-start Formula one’s journey to the much deserved popularity which seemed to have faded away in the last few seasons.
