Jenson Button has questioned his strategy during this afternoon’s Hungarian Grand Prix, claiming that he was called in too early for each set of new tyres. The McLaren driver, who started from fourth on the grid, was holding third position after the start, but dropped back as a result of his three-stop race plan and ultimately wound up sixth.
"I just don't know why we pitted so early each time," Button told Sky Sports F1 after the race. "On the second and third stops we pitted very early and the tyres were still in good condition.
"I guess the team thought I would get the jump on the car in front but that wasn't the case. I didn't come out in clean air either time."
Button added that he was ‘a bit stuffed’ after emerging behind Williams driver Bruno Senna following his second stop, losing a large amount of time as a result.
"I said to the guys, 'is this traffic I'm in quicker than the guys in front?' and they said 'no',” Button began to sum up. "I was a bit stuffed really, I don't think we looked too good when it came to strategy today. Hopefully we'll learn from that."
