Jenson Button can take his revenge on Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel in front of the German’s home fans at the Nuerburgring this weekend, and also restore some pride to Mercedes.

Brawn GP’s championship leader was well beaten by Vettel on his home turf at Silverstone last month and is eager to turn the tables on him.

“My last stint at Silverstone showed that the pace of the car is really competitive so we are confident that we can turn it around at this race,” said the Briton, who leads Brazilian teammate Rubens Barrichello by 23 points and Vettel by 25.

The Nuerburgring marks the halfway point of the championship, the ninth of 17 grands prix, and is a home race for Stuttgart-based Mercedes as well as Bavarian rivals BMW.
