Button: I need to find a balance and consistent car

Frustrated Jenson Button says that he needs the balance with car and find a consistent car really. Button start from 12th on the grid but his race position loses after a first corner incident that gone back in the midfield. After the his first pit-stop and fit with super-soft compound and spend lots of time behind the Caterham’s Heikki Kovalainen.

“It wasn’t really a fight with Kovalainen, if you place your car in the right place you can’t overtake and he kept doing that,” Button said.

“I mean, it’s impossible. It’s quite frustrating when you’re so much quicker but you can’t overtake, so game over. At least I didn’t have to do the last eight laps – that’s one way of looking at it – and feel pain for even longer, but it’s over now and we can look forward to qualifying better and then not getting unlucky.

“We were very unlucky at the start and that’s what dropped me down so far so, tough weekend.”

“I’ve got to be quicker in qualifying and to do that I need to find a balance that I like with the car and just try and find a consistent car really. At the start of the week it seems good and then in qualifying it’s not, so hopefully we can find that one.

“I suppose when you put yourself that far back in qualifying it’s easy for things to happen around you, but I couldn’t have been any unluckier at the start. Kobayashi almost landed on top of me because he got launched from someone else and I was stuck at the exit of Ste Devote. But that’s the way it is and these guys are having their day today and hopefully it’ll come for us sooner rather than later.”
