F1 Mexican Grand Prix: Honda issues force Button out of Mexico GP qualifying

Having already been forced to miss most of the three practice sessions, Jenson Button won't participate in Mexican GP qualifying either.
Jenson Button will miss qualifying for the Mexican Grand Prix after McLaren failed to resolve a signal on the Honda power unit.

In what has been a torrid weekend for the former champion so far, Button had already been forced to sit out FP1 and much of FP2, before more problems struck to sideline him in FP3 as well.

Traced to a signal issue on the engine, McLaren and Honda has been busily attempting to fix it but with minutes to go before qualifying, the team would confirm he won't participate in the session at all.




Button was already set to start at the back of the grid after taking penalties for engine changes, but failing to make it out for qualifying means he is confirmed in 20th and last.

To dream the impossible dream To fight the unbeatable foe To bear with unbearable sorrow To run where the brave dare not go To right the unrightable wrong To be better far than you are To try when your arms are too weary To reach the unreachable star

And then they woke up and realised what they'd signed , a contract with Honda!
And the contract was for several years!
