Jenson Button: “I don’t have many positives to say about my race”

Jenson Button did not have many positive things to say about his weekend at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez after finishing fourteenth on Sunday having started at the back of the field.

Button had started twentieth and last due to numerous penalties picked up for various engine changes on his McLaren-Honda, with the British driver eventually being penalised seventy places on the grid.

He then endured a tough race, finding himself easily passed down the straights by pretty much everyone bar the two Manor F1 Team drivers, but at least was positive about the performance of his car in the final twisty sector of the lap.

“The Mexican fans should feel very proud of themselves – they’ve been amazing out there all weekend,” said Button. “By contrast, I don’t have many positive things to say about my race.

“The other cars were significantly quicker than us in a straight line. On the plus side, though, compared with the middle-of-the-pack cars, we were quicker in the final sector of the lap. They came past us on the straight, but then we caught them back up in the final corners.

“To be fair, however, I think we lost more power compared with the other teams on this high-altitude circuit.”
