Jenson Button says next weekend’s Chinese Grand Prix will serve as a fresh start to his season, with the McLaren driver eager to make up for two disappointing races in Australia and Malaysia.
"In a funny way, the Chinese Grand Prix almost feels like something of a reboot of the start of my season," Button commented. "Taking home two points from the first two races obviously wasn’t what we had in mind at the beginning of the year, but I think everybody in the team has picked themselves up and really attacked the task of addressing our car’s issues.
"We know where we’re losing performance, so I think we’re actually looking forward to seeing what we can achieve in Shanghai. I think we can have a pretty good race."
"The important thing for us as a team is to go into the weekend with clear focus, hone our strengths across the sessions and increase our understanding of the car," Button added. "I definitely think there’s everything to play for with this championship, and I can’t wait to get back into the cockpit to start the fight again."
