Former Formula One Drivers’ World Championship holder Jenson Button has insisted that he made no mistake in re-signing with McLaren Honda for the 2015 season despite the team going through such a crisis.
Button finished at last position, two laps down at the season opening Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne’s Albert Park last weekend, while rookie driver Kevin Magnussen, standing in for the injured Fernando Alonso failed to finish the race. While their poor qualifying session was not the worst in their history, it was the worst they had performed in the last 49 years and it just goes to show the huge gulf in class between the leading pack and the Woking based outfit.
The 2009 Drivers’ world champion signed a new two year deal with the team in December after being made to wait for months over a decision from the team about retaining him. However, the Englishman is confident that McLaren Honda will bounce back and it is only a matter of time before Honda, their new engine manufacturers get things right again.
Jenson Button has, however, warned that the team will need time to get back to the top. He said that when he signed the new deal, he was thinking of the long term goals and everywhere in the team, they are thinking long term. (more…)Read More
