Button – Mixed outcome from latest upgrades



Jenson Button says that some positives and negatives following McLaren’s latest upgrades for Spanish Grand Prix.

During the Friday practice Jenson Button running with new side-pod design and Sergio Perez tested new front wing, but the guys are struggled to achieve top ten pace in the Friday practice.

The Brit also added that one positive the team had taken away from the first two practice sessions is a closer correlation between data from the wind tunnel and the on-track experience.

“There are some positives to the balance of the car and there are some negatives,” Button said.

“The problem in this sport is that you’ve got to move forward in every race. We have moved forward but I think everybody has.

“We haven’t had the new front wing on the car and we are not sure we will this weekend. There’s a lot of data to go through and things to change to see what’s working and what is affecting our balance. There are some positives with the balance but there are areas we need to improve on and they are areas I didn’t think we’d have to [work on].”

“I think you’ll see four teams that are very competitive at the front and I don’t think we’ll be one of them. We should be just behind. There’s a much better correlation with the car and the wind tunnel from now on,” he said.

“I think it’s a good correlation which is positive for the future. We still need more and we always want more performance, so that’s what we are working very hard to do.”
