Former Formula One champion Damon Hill believes McLaren driver Jenson Button can win the F1 championship this season, as he is in the best form of his life.

Hill, who won the F1 title in 1996, reckons Button has the capability to end Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel's domination this season.

"It is something that comes to you after a number of years in F1. All the things you have learned finally come together and that is what we are seeing with Jenson," The Sun quoted Hill, as saying.

"In his life, he is really where he wants to be right now. I believe in paying your dues and once you get your hands on the tools that can do the job, you don't want to let go," he added. (ANI)
