Mercedes GP’s Nico Rosberg ready for his 100th Grand Prix and McLaren’s Jenson Button prepared for his 200th Grand Prix it’s two important anniversaries in Hungary this weekend, Button figure on the track which brought his maiden F1 victory for Honda five years ago.
“I can’t believe I’ve already knocked up a double-ton of F1 starts because I don’t feel a day older than when I made my debut back in 2000!” says the McLaren driver, whose first race was for Williams at the Australian Grand Prix. After a premature end to my race at the Nürburgring, I’ll be hoping for better luck at the Hungaroring. The MP4-26 was very competitive in Monaco a couple of months ago and I hope it will be a similar situation this weekend because the Hungaroring has many of the same performance criteria.”
Since his victory in 2006, Button has been out of luck in Budapest, notching up respective results of a retirement, 12th, 7th and 8th between 2007 and 2010.
