World champion Jenson Button says his sights are set on ending the season in style in Abu Dhabi this weekend, even though he has already wrapped up the title.
The Brawn GP driver clinched the crown in Brazil, when rivals Rubens Barrichello and Sebastian Vettel failed to score the points they needed to keep the championship race open to this weekend's race.
However, even though his main job is done, Button is keen to not ease off this weekend - as he targets a strong end to his campaign.
"It's a fantastic feeling to be going into the final race having achieved my ambition of winning the drivers' championship and with the team having wrapped up the constructors' championship in Brazil," explained Button.
"We want to finish the season in style with a great result but we can be a little more relaxed in our approach to the weekend."
Although the Yas Marina circuit is new to everyone, Button is sure that it will help deliver an exciting end to the season.
"It's always fun to try a new race track, particularly one which looks as unique as Yas Marina with the unusual pitlane exit and the day/night race," he said. "I'm sure Abu Dhabi is going to host an exciting weekend and a great finale to the 2009 Formula 1 season."
