Button apologises for 'negative' Valencia comments
23 June 2012 – Jenson Button has apologised for his immediate post-qualifying reaction in Valencia on Saturday. The Englishman, who finished a frustrating session in ninth position, hit out at the Spanish street circuit ahead of tomorrow's European Grand Prix.
When asked about the 57-lap race ahead, Button replied: "We're in Valencia. Not a lot happens here," - a statement which he later apologised for.
"Sorry for my negative comments about Valencia," he wrote on Twitter. "Now I've calmed down I think there is still a lot to play for (on) Sunday!"
Despite struggling with front wheel locking, he believes his McLaren is quicker than his qualifying time suggests. The 2009 World Champion hopes reverting to a previous setup will stop issues reoccurring in tomorrow’s race.
“We’re also going to go back on a few changes in order to get a car setup that we know feels reasonably good,” he explained. “There are a couple of other changes we’re also considering for tomorrow which could be quite interesting.”
