F1 2013 – Monaco Grand Prix: Button surprised by long run pace

Formula One News » F1 2013 – Monaco Grand Prix: Button surprised by long run pace

Jenson button is hoping McLaren take another step forward this Sunday as he believes their race pace is “surprisingly good”.

Button said “We struggled in the morning when the circuit was still fairly ‘green’ – we couldn’t get any temperatures into the tyres, but I think that affected everybody, not just us,”

“Our pace on a long run looks surprisingly good, although we’re not quite there with our qualifying pace yet.”

“Still, I feel happier with the car here than I have the past few weekends. There are some areas in which we’ve struggled before that now seem a little bit better, and that’s obviously positive.

“We may not be setting amazing times out there, but I’m happy that we’re heading in the right direction. And hopefully we can improve on Saturday from where we are today.”
