F1 » F1 Spain 2013: Spanish GP a 'useful benchmark', says Button

Jenson Button: There's been a lot of talk about the importance of next weekend's upgrades; but, as with every upgrade, they're simply part of the series of continuous improvement that are made across the season.

Hopefully we will see some improvement from Mclaren in Spain, the fact is that unless these initial upgrades show real improvement they are in serious trouble It's all very well having a series of upgrades but unless they are making advances at each stage the season will be totally lost to them. There is a huge gap to the fastest teams and while I don't expect them to close up in one race I hope they can advance pretty quickly. I imagine Button's champing at the bit as he sees another season go by from the middle of the pack.

I find it quite funny that people on this site refer to Jenson as "no grip".

The minute that the sky opens up and the grip actually disappears he usually makes the rest of the grid look like amateurs.

What's even funnier is that when he does this he gets nothing but ridicule, saying that he's not a good driver cause he can only win in the wet or changeable conditions.

Yet Senna's brilliance in the wet and changeable conditions is often quoted as one of the reasons people thought he was so good with his lap at Donnington in 93 often referred to as the 'lap of the gods'.

And before anyone chimes in with Button not being anywhere near as good as Senna, that's not what I'm saying.

The point is, one of the reasons why people say Senna was so good is the same reason they use to say that Button is no good.

Bit stupid really!
