Button dissatisfied with Valencia qualifying



Despite McLaren speedy Jenson Button struggled too in Qualifying with front locking for European Grand Prix at Valencia.

2009 world champion done ninth fastest lap-time, 0.715s slower than pole-sitter Sebastian Vettel and he is not expecting tomorrow will be the most thrilling race at Valencia.

“The last run in qualifying, I had a massive amount of front locking, I just couldn’t slow the car down,” Button told the BBC.

“I couldn’t stop locking my fronts. We’re in Valencia, not a lot happens here in the race. You can’t overtake round here.

“The way the tyres seem to hold on for most people, I don’t think it will be the most exciting race.”

But McLaren team Principal Martin Whitmarsh says that Jenson Button back to form in Valencia race.

“You’ve got to get everything right, it’s so competitive. For Jenson, it isn’t as bad as it looks. What he did in practice this morning and Q2 was incredibly strong.

“He didn’t quite get it altogether in Q3 but I think he knows that he’s back in the right place in terms of competitiveness. He’s a great racer and I think he can come through in the race.”
