McLaren driver Jenson Button, who won the world championship with Brawn GP in 2009, agrees. "Glad to hear Sergio isn't seriously injured. That's a scary place to end up in the barriers. Still think we can do more to help with safety," he said on Sunday morning.

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel insists that being world champion has not changed him.

You just have to deal with it."
