Button 'closed eyes' in Vettel incident

McLaren's Jenson Button admits he closed his eyes when race leader Sebastian Vettel braked suddenly under the safety car and was happy he just avoided making contact with the Red Bull.

Button says his title chances are "very slim" now but that he is enjoying racing after finishing second at the Singapore Grand Prix, behind Vettel.

The 2009 world champion feels if McLaren can overcome their reliability issues they can challenge for the win at the final six races of the season.
