Button not giving up on podium

Button not giving up on podium

Jenson Button is hoping that as long as he works his way up into the points, history will be kind to him on the streets of Monaco.

Button had a dismal Saturday afternoon in the Principality as the McLaren driver failed to find the pace needed to challenge for pole position.

In fact, such was his slump that Button failed to even make it into the final shoot-out, qualifying down in 13th place.

"Monaco is all about qualifying - that's just the way it is - but I didn't quite have the pace this afternoon.

"The car felt good this morning and we looked strong, but then we couldn't translate that performance when it mattered.

"It's strange, because it's there at certain points of the weekend - even this morning, in P3, the car felt good and I was pretty happy."

The Brit, though, is refusing to give up on a solid showing come Sunday's 78-lap grand prix.

"I'm hoping that our pace will be better in the race - but it's very tricky to overtake here.

"The drivers around me are going to be on the same strategy, so it's going to be tough, but as always we'll do our best.

"I've only finished in the points at Monaco three times before -in first, second and third positions.

"I hope I get another one of those tomorrow!"
