Hungarian Grand Prix: Button relieved by 'step forward'

“Now, we've got time to go away and analyse why the balance felt so different between the two sessions. We've got a lot of information to sift through, and I think we have the potential to do better tomorrow," Perez insisted. "Our aim for this weekend will be to score points and to have another decent weekend as we did in Germany."

Button had predicted earlier in the week that the team might be able to compete for a podium at the next race after the August break, something that McLaren's sporting director Sam Michael was keen to play down somewhat on Friday.

"The team's just working away in our normal fashion of understanding. Like any sort of programme, you go through waves of understanding and improving correlation," he said. "The drivers are upbeat but ultimately, we're still on a journey back to the front of the grid."

The car may have improved but so have all the others, a second is still a large gap and I don't see Mclaren getting into the top positions. Maybe if there is rain Button might grab a top ten finish if his team mate does'nt attempt to take him out.
