I'm an a*** at times, says Jenson Button

   Apr 12, 2:36 pm

London, Apr 12 (ANI): Jenson Button has admitted that contrary to what many people think, his 'Mr Cool' persona does slip at times, insisting that he does have days when he is an 'a***'.

The 32-year-old comes across as a model of professionalism and diplomacy, someone who knows how to race hard on the track, but is a relaxed character off it, the Daily Express reported.

"We all have days when we're stressed, even when times are good. That's about being a human being, I guess," said Button.

"But I definitely have days when I'm an a***, a side of my character I don't show to you guys [the media].

"I keep that under wraps because I am quite a private person when it comes to my personal life."

The McLaren ace insisted that he is still trying to figure out exactly who he is.

"But I'm not as relaxed as people may think. There are two types of people in every sport - one who is running towards something and one who is running away from something - and I still don't know which one I am."

"I know I love what I do and I hate the days when I don't do very well, but I love the days when things go well. I just couldn't go through life with nothing. I need the highs and lows - I hate the lows but the highs make them worthwhile.

"Even when you get the lows you have to stay strong and try to be as positive as you can," he added.

That is why Button apparently surrounds himself with people who can pick him up when times are tough, but also bring him back down to earth on occasions when he is appearing high-headed. (ANI)
