Michael SchumacherSeven time Formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher has congratulated Brawn GP’s Jenson Button for winning the 2009 drivers title and Brawn GP for the constructors’ championship.

“The fight for the world championship titles is over already one race prior to the finale. As a fan of F1 I would have wished for a decision at the last race obviously, but on the other side I know from my own experience that being involved you have a different view on that,” wrote Schumacher on his official website.

“Congratulations to Jenson and Ross and the whole team – what they managed to achieve this year has my full respect. I grant them the titles because if you only look at what they have been through you realize what an incredible story this is: just one year ago they did think everything is over. I am extremely happy for Ross who I know since such a long time now, he deserves this success,” he added.

The German also had some encouraging words for his compatriot Sebastian Vettel.

“What a pity obviously for Sebastian, but he still has a lot of time. He had a fantastic season and showed that he has everything to become world champion,” said Schumacher.

“He must not forget that with all the disappointment now. Of course he will see that differently at the moment and will need some days to digest this weekend. But I am sure we will see and hear a lot of good stuff from him in the future,” he added.
