Button not happy with McLaren car
FORMULA ONE:Jenson Button, the Formula One world champion three years ago, has described his McLaren car as the worst he has had in three years at the team.
The 32-year-old British driver, who finished fourth in Sunday’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, said: “This car hasn’t suited me as well as McLaren’s last two. Since I’ve been here this has been the worst year. It’s been tricky, even on good weekends.
“We’ve had a problem pretty much every weekend, lately. We need to stop it. I don’t get it,” added Button
Button has been just as frustrated as his departing team-mate Lewis Hamilton as McLaren have failed to match the performances of Red Bull – or even Ferrari, who now look likely to relegate the British team to third place in the constructors’ championship.
Red Bull are certain to nail the team title, probably in Texas on Sunday week, while the drivers’ crown is a two-way fight between Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso of Ferrari. Guardian Service
