Jenson Button pleased with second place in Singapore GP, he admitting struggled with balancing problem. Also he slightly expects 2012 divers’ championship title if fix reliability issues and win all six remaining races.
Button start from fourth on the grid, he made a fantastic start and overtook Maldonado in Turn 2 on opening lap he kept the third position, when his team-mate Lewis Hamilton retired from the race and its advantaged him promoted to second place.
“It’s nice to be back on the podium – and, if I finish every remaining race in the top one or two, that’ll be perfect. Button said
“During the first stint, I even thought I had a chance of winning because I was able to go longer than the cars around me. But then they didn’t seem to struggle much on the harder tyre, so the advantage swung away from me. I had a good second stint, but the harder tyre didn’t feel quite as good for me [as the softer tyre]. Then I didn’t really have good balance in the final 10 laps.
Jenson Button also disappointed with his team-mate Lewis Hamilton’s retirement, he says McLaren need to solve reliability issues and definitely have a chance of fighting for the win in all six remaining races.
“I still have a slim chance of winning the drivers’ world championship, but I’m just enjoying my racing at the moment. I think our car will be competitive at Suzuka, and we’re doing a very good job as a team too. Of course, it’s disappointing that we had a reliability failure with Lewis’s car, so that’s something we need to solve, particularly as we’re doing such a good job in every other area.” Button added.
“If we can solve our reliability issues, we’ll definitely have a chance of fighting for the win in all six remaining races.”
