Button to McLaren: Solve the problems
British driver Jenson Button has called on McLaren to quickly resolve their mechanical problems if they want to avoid the season ending in failure
McLaren’s challenge has been undermined as they have only managed to get one car home in each of their last three races.
Running second in Italy, Button was forced out with a fuel system issue, while in Singapore on Sunday a gearbox problem wrecked Hamilton’s hopes of a win in a race he was comfortably leading.
“It is affecting us in the constructors’,” said Button as McLaren trail Red Bull in the championship by 38 points.
“It is such a shame because the team in every other area are doing such a good job. But two failures in two races is not what McLaren are about, so we have to solve these issues and move forward.”
