McLaren's Jenson Button believes that he was held up in the final laps at the German Grand Prix by the two Caterham drivers.

Jenson Button has claimed that his performance at the German Grand Prix was "destroyed" by the Caterhams in the final laps.

The McLaren driver believes that he was held up as he lapped Charles Pic and Giedo van der Garde in the closing stages of the race, resulting in him losing a place to Lewis Hamilton on the last lap.

"They destroyed our race in terms of fighting for fifth place. They're obviously racing for position, but when you get blue flags you have to move over," Autosport quotes the Briton as saying.

"It was disappointing and I've spoken to them both and they didn't really think they did anything wrong.

"Obviously we all have our different views, but when you're fighting for position and you're lapping someone you expect the backmarkers to move over."

Button finished the race, which was won by Sebastian Vettel, in sixth place.
