Button Says End of 2013 Could Be Like Beginning of 2012

By December 28, 2012

Follow me on:

In a talk with Autosport, Jenson Button has said that he thinks McLaren will be able to be stronger in 2013 and that he thinks they will not have the problems of reliability that cost them so much this year.  It is true that when the car held together, it was fast and great - look at the end of the season when things looked little better, and Lewis Hamilton won in Austin and then led in Brazil until he was bumped off the track.

But Button also made an interesting observation about the new Pirelli tire compound for next year that the drivers checked out in Brazil.  Button thinks that it will be easier to warm up, and that it will not give the same problems as last year, but he says he thinks there will be a lot more rubber degradation towards the end of the season, creating a lot of unpredictable results, as things were with the Pirellis in the beginning of 2012....
