Monaco grid penalty hurts Button after making Q3

McLaren substitute – Jenson Button posted a 1:13.709 on his run which was ninth fastest but he will start last due to his 15-place engine penalty.

“It doesn’t matter how many races you’ve done or not, it still hurts,” said Button.

“They told me yesterday – I was so excited about qualifying because Thursday went really well.

“We both got penalties, Stoffel [Vandoorne, who carries over a penalty from the Spanish GP] will start 12th because he gains my position and I’ll start last.

“We would have both started in the points, so it’s a shame. But hey, it’s never easy, is it?”

The Brit said he enjoyed the qualifying hour, which he declared will be his final one in F1.

“To be P9, I’m very happy and I’ve enjoyed the weekend a lot,” It’s my last qualifying session, and probably one of my most enjoyable. The Brit added

“I haven’t missed F1, I’ve had such a good six months, then I get back in the car and absolutely loved it.

“I was told to have fun and enjoy it and I definitely have – not just driving the car, but the whole F1 atmosphere.”
