Button suffered of ultimate race cooling trouble



The F1 World Champion Jenson Button was extremely dissatisfied to have stopped race early on in Monaco GP. After making a deprived start to plummet from eighth on the grid to 11th place, the McLaren driver was enforced to stop his car under Safety Car situation. Having already endured his bad leave, Button sustained to run 11th after Nico Hülkenberg’s collide slowed the race although the 2009 Monte-Carlo winner – and championship leader coming into the sixth race of the year – stopped at St. Devote.

“I think the car got a bit hot on the grid,” Button explained to a gaggle of reporters. “It got very hot and I had to turn it off.

“It might have been fine if we hadn’t had a Safety Car but at such a slow speed we just couldn’t cool it down.”
