F1 » Button: McLaren can make small step forward in Monaco

Jenson Button: We'll continue to chip away at the performance of the MP4-28 until it's capable of challenging at the front; there's no other agenda for a winning team like McLaren.

Jensen will do better here. Their lack of pace won't be such a handicap, but jensens ability to kiss the walls will help. The McLaren seems to go better with a lighter load, and these fractions, coupled with another small step forward for the team, will probably ean he should be fighting for 5th legitimately. Add in the attrition rate and perhaps he will do better still.
Biggest problem will be the qualifying position. He should make it into the top eight here, but the winner has to be Alonso, all the way.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but that is not factually accurate. There's no way Jenson is a slower driver than DeLa Rosa or......Karthikeyan.

But seriously...cure yourself of your short memory. In 2011, Jenson came second only to Vettel in the WDC. So, if he is "the slowest driver to drive an F1 car", what does that say about all the other drivers he thrashed in 2011?

Only came second!!! are you serious, Vettel dished out an asswhooping including Button... He won the title with 5 races to go almost 150 points difference. Its like claiming that I came second to Usain Bolt, the whole world would know that they would be daylight between 1st and 2nd... Remember that
Vettel won 12 races
Button 3 races
Lewis 3 races
Alonso 1 race
Webber 1 race
