Button: A lot of work to do

Button: A lot of work to do

Despite netting McLaren's second double points-haul of the campaign, Jenson Button has denied the team took a step forward in Spain.

Starting 14th on the grid after being undone by a tyre pressure issue in qualifying, Button dropped at the start of Sunday's 66-lap Spanish Grand Prix and was running down in 17th place by the end of the first lap.

The Brit, though, fought back and with the help of a three-stop strategy in his updated MP4-28 finished the grand prix in eighth place.

That put him one position ahead of his team-mate Sergio Perez, netting only McLaren's second double points-haul of this season.

But despite both drivers finishing inside the top ten, Button has downplayed talk of McLaren have taken a step forward at Barcelona.

"I don't think so really," he told the BBC when asked if he felt things were improving.

"For me it was an interesting race my start wasn't very strong which was unusual because we are usually strong at the start.

"Turn One was a mess so to finish 8th probably wasn't too bad but there is a lot of work still to do.

"Some of the speeds cars were going past me means we have got as lot to do."

The Brit, though, firmly believes McLaren have what it takes to turn their fortunes around.

"It is still possible for us to still get up there and I want to thank all the fans for their support, it's a bit embarrassing really to see them all but we will get it right."
