After not speaking to the world's media in the regular post-race press conference because he didn't finish in the top three at Interlagos, F1's governing body convened a special press conference for the new world champion Jenson Button.

The 30-minute conference at Interlagos, however, took place in front of an only half-full contingent of reporters, but not as few as those who gathered earlier to hear the race winner Mark Webber.

Part of the reason for the low attendance at Button's conference was the time difference back to Europe, F1's bulk audience, as the Sao Paulo clock showed a time three or four hours earlier than in western Europe, where print deadlines loomed.

Briton Button, 29, finished the Brazilian GP fifth after starting fourteenth, hailing the drive as perhaps the best of his entire career.

He also deserved a trophy for repetitiveness, uttering the words "world champion" beyond the tallying powers of those present.

"I'm going to be saying that all night!" he grinned.
