Button spun at Turn 1 trouble for McLaren – Practice One

It is a very poor start to practice for McLaren F1 team. Jenson Button has just spun and delayed his car at the turn 1. He climbing out of the difficult McLaren and he’s done for the time being. At least it is a short walk back to the pits from there.

Button tried to correct a moment of under-steer on the way into the corner, and then the rear end just broke away from him the further he got into the corner.

Earlier Jenson Button said not to expect too much. ‘It was a big deal for Honda to finish both cars,’ he said, ‘but I don’t think you’ll see a big step forward in terms of outright power here.

“It is a very difficult race for everyone because of long straights heat and wind, which brings a lot of sand, and it will be tricky circuit for us because of the long straights. The positive for us is we are pretty good at looking after rear tyres; whether that is enough to move forward I’m not sure.'”… more to follow
