Button: Very difficult to beat Red Bull in qualifying

Published

on

Jenson Button predicting, Red Bull will set another pole position at Korean GP tomorrow, he says after the practice session, they are going to be very, very difficult to beat in qualifying.

Button struggled in morning practice session and he took 10th fastest lap-time, following he was improved the lap-time in second practice session and set fourth fastest, but still not matching his time with Red Bull duo best, they are +.4 seconds ahead of McLaren speedy.

Last year defending world champion Sebastian Vettel took top podium with pole position and also the rival’s now fearing with Red Bull’s back-to-back victory in last two grand prix’s at Singapore and Japan.

“I think they’re going to be very, very difficult to beat in qualifying…they’ve got those four tenths again in practice,” Button said.

“They just seem to have got that strength back. Our own race pace seems to be competitive but, over the one lap, we are still lacking and we’ve got to work on it. With Red Bull, we were all already surprised by their speed at Suzuka.”

Button team-mate Lewis Hamilton also struggled with troubled breaking and wide running at Turn 1, he was took top fastest lap-time in morning session and eighth quickest in FP2.

“The first session was great, the first session was fantastic, and I don’t really know what’s happened in this session so we need to analyze and I need to look at it. Wind direction has changed and all those things but it didn’t seem to affect other people so I have to try and figure that out.” Hamilton said
