ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates(AP) With Sebastian Vettel already crowned Formula One world champion, Jenson Button leads a group of four drivers fighting for second place.
The McLaren driver has a 13-point lead over Ferrari's Fernando Alonso with two races remaining. Red Bull's Mark Webber is 19 points back and McLaren's Lewis Hamilton 38 points adrift.
As he prepares for this weekend's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Button says he would rather be challenging for the championship but finishing ahead of several other former champions would still mean something.
