Button expects 'fierce battle'

Button expects 'fierce battle'

Jenson Button believes McLaren won't have it all their own way this weekend despite dominating Friday's sessions in Hungary.

The McLaren driver's team-mate set the pace in both practice sessions on Friday while Button was second in FP1 and then sixth quickest later in the afternoon.

The Brit revealed that a few "different things" attempted on in Practice Two did not go according to plan, prompting a return to the settings used earlier in the day.

"The first session was reasonably good - it's good to see that we're competitive straight out of the box," Button said.

"This afternoon's session we tried some different things to help the balance; I don't think it was the right thing to do so we've gone back on most of them."

"But I'm pretty happy with the car and I think we're reasonably competitive around here."

Button, though, concedes McLaren face a tough challenge this weekend as their rivals were not too far behind.

"The second session proved that a lot of people are quite competitive around here so it's going to be a fierce battle this weekend and from what we've heard it should be dry most of the weekend."
