Jenson Button has paid tribute to Lewis Hamilton after the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes pair teamed up together for the final time in yesterday's Brazilian Grand Prix.
Button was locked in a compelling battle with team mate Hamilton during the early stages of the race.
Hamilton was leading when Force India's Nico Hulkenberg slid into him, ending his race and his six-year stay with McLaren with a disappointing DNF.
Frome's Button went on to win a chaotic race at Interlagos and, amid the celebrations, he took time to wish his former team mate all the best.
“I had a lot of fun racing with Lewis, especially for the first 10 laps," said Button, from Frome.
"We had a really good, clean fight. It’s a pity he wasn’t still there at the end – but it was nice to have such a great dice with him in our last race as Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team-mates.
"And I really want to say this: ‘It’s been so good working with you, Lewis. Over the past few years, we’ve driven a lot of great races together. It’s been fab."
Hamilton will join Mercedes on a three-year deal on January 1.
