2009 world champion Jenson Button says that brand new 2013 McLaren F1 car will more suit him, following after his difficult season with Working based squad.
Button also admits that McLaren MP4-27 is quick, but consistency problem bit more difficult for him. Opening race of the season he qualified on second and took top podium place, following he was struggled much more races, in the second half of the race again he finished on top in the Belgian GP.
“For me this year has been more difficult than the last two years,” Button talking to Sky Sports.
“The car is quick, we’ve proved that on many occasions. But for consistency, for me it’s been a little bit more difficult to get the results. The car next year should suit me a bit more, which I’m very excited about.”
This weekend’s race at the Circuit of the Americas might have no meaning for Button’s – or his team’s – Championship fight, but the McLaren man feels he can still compete for a good result.
The Brit is also expecting McLaren MP4-27 will suit with Circuit of the Americas for opening US Grand Prix in this weekend.
“Probably we’re the ones that know [the track] the best because probably our simulator is the best on the grid,” Button said.
“We have a good feeling for the circuit. It’s very tough on the cars and the tyres – especially the first sector. Turn 1 to Turn 9 is very fast and it’s just changes of direction all the way through. Our car seems to work well in that environment, and then you’ve got a lot of slow corners towards the end of the lap.”
