Jenson Button expects that to ‘reboot’ his season at the Chinese Grand Prix. McLaren showed signs of developments between the two opening Grand Prix’s and Button expecting his season can really start to kick off in China next weekend.

Woking based squad struggled throughout the pre-season testing and raise the problems turn into opening Grand Prix at Australia. Second Grand Prix at Malaysia the car performed better than Australia, but Pit-stop error dropped Jenson Button’s from point finish.

“In a funny way, the Chinese Grand Prix almost feels like something of a reboot of the start of my season. Taking home two points from the first two races obviously wasn’t what we had in mind at the beginning of the year, but I think everybody in the team has picked themselves up and really attacked the task of addressing our car’s issues.” Button said.

“We know where we’re losing performance, so I think we’re actually all looking forward to seeing just what we can achieve in Shanghai. As far as the circuit goes, I’ve always enjoyed racing here: our car has always performed well around this circuit and we’ve always seemed to be able to find a good balance between the slow stuff, the high-speed changes of direction and the drag-loss needed for the long straight.”

“It’s a pretty good place for racing, too, because that straight offers such a good opportunity for slipstreaming and overtaking. I think we can have a pretty good race next weekend, too. The important thing for us as a team is to go into the weekend with clear focus, hone our strengths across the sessions and increase our understanding of the car. I definitely think there’s everything to play for with this championship, and I can’t wait to get back into the cockpit to start the fight again.” The Brit added.
