It was a real case of what a difference a week makes for Button for after the high of victory in the Belgian Grand Prix, seven days later came the low of a retirement when running second in Italy on Sunday with a fuel issue.
At Spa, McLaren star Button revived his title chances on a day when title leader Fernando Alonso crashed out. But at Monza, with Alonso claiming third in front of the adoring Ferrari fans, the gap is again sizeable, seemingly unbridgeable, at 78 points.
“We’ve had a great stretch and we’ve been the only team that has had a stretch like that,” said Button, speaking to Press Association Sport.
