Is possible Button is sandbagging .. but judging from his inconsistent pace on long-runs.. I would say the car is fast but as he says, not consistent, it might be the new push-rod front suspension Ferrari struggled with consistency as well.. (but also Ferrari had wind tunnel issues, which Mclaren does not) - and keep in mind, Button as team leader.. this is the car he said that he was bending and twisting in order to suit him, his wants, his needs, his driving style.. So I hope for his sake he is sandbagging. But as a Ferrari fan I actually hope he is being brutally honest.

His claim of "best car we've ever made" or whatever, was just something said at a media event before they'd even put the car around a track. Anyone who actually took that claim seriously pretty much has no business trying to analyse the running order.
