After the attack of sincerity Jenson Button on the day of the sabbath-in which he admitted that the McLaren only operates well in slow corners and under braking, the Sunday came to confirm the bad weekend for the team. While Fernando Alonso ended the race one position behind how you ranked them, Jenson Button came back from the last square, but only up to the eighteenth place finish after an intense fight with the Manor.
Everything started wrong since the same output, in which the british paid dearly brand new engine and not having had the chance to calibrate everything correctly. “The output was really poor, the problem is that everything was new in the rear, so I had a lot of skating”, commented Jenson to the press shifted to Suzuka, and then describe his duel with the Manor, which was much more complicated than what could be expected for a team on the level of McLaren. “it Was really difficult to go to the Manor, went with soft tyres and I went with the hard. It was really hard, but I managed to pass them at the end. I finished eighteenth, so that is horrible, but still we were able to make some overtaking fun in some battles”, recognized Button trying to take something positive from the race.
experience in Suzuka, home of Honda, has been far more traumatic than expected, but Jenson is expected that in Austin things to change dramatically. “it Is a pity that it (Suzuka) is a track bad for us and also our second home. I don’t think anyone will wait that we were so well like in Suzuka and Spa. We are not fast here, but in the next race will be. Not everything can be good”, ended by commenting Button.
