GP Week : Issue 202
In the end, sixth and tenth was not a bad outcome for McLaren. It could so easily have been sixth and seventh without the late- race problem with Kevin Magnussen’s Power Unit. Best of the rest. For now, that’s where McLaren is. As Eric Boullier summed up: " Sixth and tenth isn't where we want to be, but we have to be realistic and acknowledge that this was a good per formance. “Finishing tenth will be tough for Kevin to accept – he looked set for at least sixth place until the closing laps, when a problem with his power-unit dropped him down the order in quick succession. Fortunately, we were able to rectify the problem so he could proceed, but the incident with Kimi obviously didn't help. “As usual, Jenson showed all his customary flair and experience to relentlessly move up the order from 12th on the grid. He was always well positioned to benefit from the incidents and action ahead of him, and judged the second Safety Car to perfection, choosing to dive into the pits at exactly the right time.” For veteran Button, it was a typical Monaco: "I it was messy out there; people were making mistakes; there were cars all over the place; you had to stay focused; keep up with the pack, and look af ter the t yres, using them when necessary. For the entirety of my final stint, I looked af ter my tyres and dropped back into the clear air behind Kevin. Then it was just about pacing myself to the end. I couldn't quite get past Nico (Hulkenberg) at the end – he was struggling with his tyres, but whenever I pushed, I struggled as well, so I couldn't make it stick.
