Button finds why his McLaren slowest by a long way

Published

on

Race winner Lewis Hamilton’s team-mate Jenson Button says that he hasn’t got a hint how to set right the grip troubles he presently faces with his McLaren following finishing the Canadian GP a lap along in 16th position.

“I haven’t got a clue what to do at the moment and every time we have good ideas we don’t seem to make any progress,” Button said.

“I love driving an F1 car so I am confident every time I jump in and then after two laps there is no grip anywhere.

“Out of the front pack I was the slowest by a long way, and I am not two seconds a lap slower than Lewis [Hamilton].”

“It’s not the tyres, it’s definitely not a tyre issue. I’m the only person who can’t drive the tyres? No, it is impossible.”

“I have massive degradation and I stopped before most runners and I was on the prime tyre. Obviously the car with a certain set-up is very quick but what I was driving was not a winning car.

“It’s been the same for the last couple of races and I don’t know why because it is normally something I am pretty good at. I’m driving round 1.5 seconds slower than the leaders and one is my team-mate but I can’t go any quicker.”
