Button struggled with option tyre in Brazilian GP practice

2009 world champion Jenson Button says that he was too struggled with soft-tyre pace in Brazilian GP Practice. Briton set seventh fastest n second practice session.

“We did some really good running this morning and at the start of the afternoon on the prime tyre – the car’s working really well on the prime tyre actually,” said Button. We tried a few different things, some worked, some didn’t, but I think we understand why we are with the prime.

“The option tyre I struggled with massively. I couldn’t get a lap on lap one, or at all, on low fuel with the tyre and on the long run I didn’t have pace either. It’s strange, with the balance I have it doesn’t work for that tyre.”

“We know some of the reasons, or we know what we can do to help some of the issues, and we just didn’t have time to do it today. The car works around here and we’ve made the soft tyre work all year, so I’m sure we can make it work.” he said.

“The car’s felt good most of the day and I’ve been pretty happy with the balance,” he said. “But I feel a lot better here today than I have here for many years, so I’m in pretty good shape.”
