Sept.22 – 2009 world champions Jenson Button says McLaren has made too many mistakes this season, consequential in fail to spot chance to win races.
Button was blamed McLaren’s errors. In British GP McLaren made Pit stop error and his cars front right wheel wasn’t attached correctly and the consequence he was forced to retire.
And the one of major fault was in Belgium GP, the team made a communications error and he dropped out of qualifying in the second session. But he was recovered to third place in the race.
“We’ve made too many mistakes this year and haven’t got it together on a race weekend, even when we’ve had the performance,” Button told the BBC in Singapore. “That’s something we’ve got to work on. If you look at the last two races, if everything had gone well, we’d have had really good chances. But we haven’t done a good enough job. I think we have a car that’s good enough to challenge for wins and if we don’t make any mistakes and everything goes right we can really challenge Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel.”
“Fans are still going to watch because it’s the best racing I’ve ever seen and definitely been a part of. F1’s in a great place right now and even if the championship is over they are still going to watch racing.”
The British speedy Button also said that McLaren would be entirely forced to challenge for race wins, even when the championship is over.
“Winning races is almost as much as winning the world championship because it’s such an emotional feeling crossing the line first. The world championship you kind of work up to through a season, whereas a race is over an hour and a half and when you win that race the emotions within the team and the atmosphere… it’s unbelievable. That’s what we are out to do, win races, and it’s not going to change because we can’t win the title.”
