After having revealed that there were a few errors found in Jenson Button’s car, the McLaren team has let on that the Brit will use teammate Lewis Hamilton’s set up at the start of the European Grand Prix weekend. The team has found slight differences between the drivers’ cars and thinks it could be the explanation for Button’s struggles in the races while his teammate is booking great results.
Button explained: “I guess the first thing you do is set up the car like the other car and that is what we will do initially. There will be settings that Lewis prefers more than anybody else does, because that is how he sets it up. I will not be as quick as him on those settings, but then we can work from there and find a set-up that works for me.”
The driver has a positive attitude towards this weekend’s race and thinks McLaren’s findings will help him find his pace back. He said: “I have won a race this year, won many races before and that is where I feel I should be. You do have bad races, so it becomes about pulling together and working out the reasons and we will. We will understand because this is a great team which has won many races and World Championships and we have won many great races together. So we will work out what the issue is. I will solve the issues, or we will solve the issues together.”
