Button P8 but craving for more

Jenson Button concluded his qualifying efforts with P8, which means he will be launching his race on the fourth row alongside team mate Fernando Alonso.

Both McLaren drivers showed relatively good pace all weekend and given the chaotic conditions which prevailed in qualifying, to access the top 10 was in itself a solid performance for the team.

Yet Button still appears unsatisfied and craving for more.

"It’s pretty good to have two cars in the top ten, but as soon as you say that, that’s not enough," says the Brit.

"The car was working well in those conditions and I always enjoy when you have to think on your feet and conditions are changing all the time.

"I think Fernando and myself are very good at that. I was definitively up a couple of tenths on my best time when the yellow flag came out, I would have improved but I don’t think it would have changed my grid position. "

The McLaren was one of many caught out by the yellow flags which were brought out when his team mate spun at the end of the session.

"I was definitely up on my lap by a few tenths, but I don’t know if it would’ve made a difference in the end because of the yellow flag. But it is what it is. In those conditions, it’s obviously quite tricky."

Button isn't quite certain of what to expect in tomorrow's race given the new Hungaroring asphalt the relative performance level of his rivals.

"I’ll be starting on the dirty side of the track tomorrow, which will be tough, but we’ll make the best out of it. It’s a new asphalt, there was rain today, so it may actually be better!

"I don’t know where other people are in terms of quick cars. I think we’re in front of all the cars that we should be racing, all the others in front are way too fast."
