Jenson Button says McLaren have to win 2011 Belgium Grand Prix after Hungary win – Formula 1 news
McLaren driver Jenson Button has said that they have to win the 2011 Belgium Grand Prix after getting very strong results from the Hungarian race weekend.
Button added that they are in a good form from the last few races of the ongoing season, so they have to achieve another goal in the next Grand Prix in order to challenge the 2011 championship.
The team driver further stated that if they formulate the right strategy during the race as they did in Hungary, they can beat Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel in every next race of this season.
Button commented, “We have to beat Seb in every race we go into if we're going to win the championship. It's a long shot, we know that, but we're going to hang on and fight to the end. We're in a reasonably good position.”
He went on to mention, “It will be really difficult for any one of us [himself, Hamilton, Alonso or Red Bull's Mark Webber] to catch Sebastian. For Mark it will be most difficult because whenever his car is quick, so will Sebastian’s cars. For us it's a
bit easier, but it’s easiest for Fernando. If his car is quickest, he's going to win.”
The 31-year-old driver has won two races in the season so far. After managing second race victory in the Hungarian Grand Prix, Button closed his gap from Vettel in the 2011 drivers’ championship.
The Woking-based outfit driver, Button is moving in the right direction in the ongoing season. After taking part in 11 rounds so far, he is sitting at the fifth place ahead of Ferrari’s Felipe Massa in the championship battle. He still has a gap of 100 points
from Vettel in the title fight at the moment.
Both of the drivers, Button and Lewis Hamilton are looking forward to another successful race weekend in Belgium following the race victory in Hungary.
They said that their MP4-26 car is competitive from the last few races, so they believe they can beat Red Bull in the last eight rounds after struggling with their car.
Let’s see how both of them perform at Spa-Francorchamps this weekend.
