Button: Third or fourth was possible in Malaysian GP

2009 world champion Jenson Button says that Third or fourth place was possible in Malaysian Grand Prix. Button’s pit-stop error cost McLaren’s fifth place finish.

On the lap 36 Jenson Button made his fourth pit-stop, but his right-front wheel was not connected properly with hard compound following the Brit rejoined the action in 14th and eventually stop battle due to tyre issue.

“We drove a good race, Strategy-wise, we did everything right. We pitted on the correct laps and looked after the tyres exactly as we should have done.” said Button.

“We’d have finished fifth but for the problem in the pitstop – maybe we’d even have been in the battle for third and fourth. It’s very disappointing that we weren’t able to demonstrate that, of course.”

“Even at the end we had a chance of scoring a point, but I was struggling with my front left tyre. It kept locking up, and it was producing such a bad vibration that I think the guys were worried that it might damage the front-left suspension if I carried on.”

“As I say, apart from the pit-stop problem, I think we did a pretty good job,” Button added.

“We’ve made improvements over the past week, and the result of those improvements was that we were more competitive here in Malaysia than we were in Australia last weekend, so there are definitely positives that we can take away with us.”
