Jenson Button has said that he can't wait to get back on track this weekend and the Englishman will be out to re-assert his authority after less than successful outings at the Nurburgring and Silverstone.

Button heads to the Hungarian Grand Prix, round ten in the 2009 FIA F1 World Championship, having seen Red Bull Racing dominate the last two events and while he is still firmly at the top of the drivers' standings - 21 points ahead of Sebastian Vettel - he is more than aware that at the very least he needs to get back on the podium.

The trip to Budapest however could be just the tonic, as unlike the last two events it is likely to be a lot warmer and that should definitely benefit Button and Brawn Grand Prix as it will mean they are less likely to struggle to get their tyres up to temperature.

"I've been at home in Monaco for the past week concentrating on my training but I know that the guys at the factory and at Mercedes-Benz have been working really hard on our latest upgrade package and I just can't wait to get back in the car," said Button.

"Hungary is always one of my favourite races and even more so this year as it should finally be a return to some real summer temperatures!"

Button's fondness for the 'Ring is hardly surprising as the 4.381 kilometre track was the scene of his debut win at the pinnacle of the sport back in 2006.

"The circuit holds some very special memories for me as the venue of my first F1 win three years ago and it's fantastic to be going back there with the chance to compete for the win again," he added.

"The Hungaroring is quite a challenging circuit as it is so twisty and there's no real respite round the lap but it is a lot of fun to drive. The lap has a good rhythm and mix of slow-speed and high-speed turns.

"The circuit generates an incredible amount of grip as the weekend gets underway which can provide a real challenge in finding the right set-up for the car," he summed-up.
