Jenson Button is striving to solve car setup difficulties when F1 continues in Monaco next weekend. In Barcelona, the McLaren driver was knocked out in Q2 qualifying before struggling from tenth on the grid to an eventual ninth place in the race.
“Congratulations to Pastor (Maldonado)!” said Button, winner of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix who made his F1 debut with Williams in 2000. “That was a great drive and I’m sure it will instil a lot of confidence in him and the Williams team.
“The Formula 1 form book is very mixed up at the moment, which is unusual, but that’s the way it appears to be going this season. As for us, well, a lot of my afternoon was spent stuck in traffic and I had a Sauber (Kamui Kobayashi) breathing down my neck for most of the race.
“All in all, we weren’t quite quick enough today – but that’s something I need to solve myself. I need to find a setup that suits me better, as I feel like I have pretty poor grip at the moment.”
Heading to Monte Carlo, Button aims to repeat his Brawn victory of 2009.
