GP Week : Issue 214
Getting it right on the day After a couple of races where race form hasn’t matched qualifying speed, one of the McLarens at least had a good race in Brazil. Jenson Button worked hard at balancing speed and tyre degradation: "Judging the race was so tricky today. I pushed really hard on my first stint on the Primes so as to maintain the gap to Valtteri. That meant I destroyed my rear tyres – but I reasoned that, if I could keep using DRs, I could establish a gap to the guys behind me. “It was worth it, and it worked, but it meant I had to back off during the following stint to look after my tyres. "It all went pretty smoothly until my final pit-stop – there was a bit of miscommunication about stopping, which meant I ended up doing an extra lap. That could have cost us a chance of the podium. “It's a shame we couldn't hang on to Felipe, but it was still a fantastic race. I really enjoyed it. One of the best aspects of it was my great fight with Kimi – you always push to the limit with him, but you never go over it, so I enjoyed that very much." 32 GPWEEK.com // 32 GPWEEK.com // F1 >>> BRAZIL PARTNERS:
