Button: Harder rubber helps Brazilian GP podium

McLaren’s Jenson Button says that early hard rubber switch was help Brazilian GP podium finish. He was struggled too in soft compound tyre and team chooses better pit decision. Through the second part of the race Button used two sets of the medium tyres, allowing him to pass Alonso for the final podium spot with nine laps to go.

“I had no pace on the softer tyres, so I used the harder rubber in the last two stints and it worked pretty well,” said Button.

“Ferrari struggled on the harder tyres and I managed to make the pass [on Alonso]. Every lap was like a qualifying lap. Fernando was very close out of Turn 5 and so I covered line for Turn 6 [Ferradura]. Normally it’s quite easy to block there.

“I looked back to see where he was, then looked back in front and saw lots of debris on the inside, from Michael’s puncture I think. I didn’t want to drive through it so I backed off but I couldn’t go left because he was already there, so I just had to pull in behind him.”\
