Button annoyed to miss out on pole
24 March 2012 – Jenson Button was delighted to have sealed a second consecutive McLaren front row lock-out in Malaysia, but admitted that he had hoped to be the car at the sharpest end of the grid. Instead, he again starts second to team-mate Lewis Hamilton.
“Yeah I think qualifying has been pretty good the last two races, so I can’t complain too much, and it’s good for us as a team to be on the front row again,” said the winner of last weekend’s Australian Grand Prix. “It’s always nice when you can hear all of the mechanics cheering because of a one-two, but you obviously always want it the other way round. Lewis did well again.”
Like Hamilton, Button will be keeping a close eye on his mirrors on the run to Turn 1, with Michael Schumacher starting third for Mercedes.
“I think it will be an exciting start again because the Mercedes is renowned for getting good starts…it’s going be a fun Turn 1,” Button smiled.
