From Post Qualifying Press Confrence

Question ::You said from the start how much you were enjoying this new qualifying session, a lot of heat out there, a lot of laps, a lot of work to do.
Jenson Button: Yes, but the problem is when you’re stuck in the garage more than anything else. Driving the car’s not so bad, it’s in the garage, but we’ve done a good job with fans and everything so I haven’t got too hot. It’s a bit of a challenge, it’s good.


“I am happy with our qualifying result today, and we will see tomorrow with the different fuel loads just how well we have done. Hopefully the Michelin tyres will continue to perform, so far they have been good, but it is a very long and hot race. We have worked intensively on the set-up of the car and I am much happier with it. I am looking forward to a good race tomorrow where we can hopefully be challenging at the front."

“I had a little bit of traffic on my out lap at the end of the session which disrupted my flying lap. As a result I didn't do as well as I could have, but I am pretty happy with the result. The car could still be better but I think that we have a competitive strategy and we will still be strong in the race tomorrow.”
