Button: "A lot of pressure" on McLaren

Published

on

Jenson Button says that lot of pressure” on McLaren and still he is not expecting better results from Bahrain Grand Prix on this weekend.

McLaren vitally troubled with off pace as the start of the season, last race at China Jenson Button finished on fifth place with two-stop strategy and now the Woking based squad 6th on the constructors’ championship.

“There is a lot of pressure on the whole team yes. But they are working flat out and I know that because they want to get back to the front – this is a passionate team and they love winning, they are used to winning and fifth place is not what they are after. Button told Sky Sports News

“It was a good result in China, we got the best out of the car, but it is not where we want to be. We will have a big package in Barcelona – it is not going to be the full seven or eight tenths in qualifying – but it will be a base we can really build on and it will then give us more options for the car in the future. I am really looking forward to that race.”

“The last race for us was actually good – we really did extract everything from the car. In terms of strategy we did a great job and I think the team should be really proud of themselves. He added

“Not a lot has changed ahead of this weekend, but it is very, very different in terms of the layout of the circuit and how the tyres work – we were front limited at the last race, this week it is rear limited – and we are going to see what we can do. I feel that we can get the same sort of result if we get lucky and get everything right, but anything better is going to have to wait until we get back to Europe.”
