Button: Race better than expected

By on Sunday, March 30, 2014


Jenson Button says that sixth place at the Malaysian Grand Prix exceeded McLaren's expectations.

Button started the race from tenth on the grid but made progress to collect a top six finish, just ahead of Williams's Felipe Massa.

"It went better than expected, I think sixth is better than we’d have thought on Friday," Button told BBC Sport.

"It was a good controlling race but the whole team and the guys did a great job with the strategy.

"You have to control when to push as if you push at some points you overheat the rears. It was a tough race and bloody tiring, I think we got the best out of the car but we need some upgrades."
