Jenson Button says he’s not attaching any special importance to McLaren’s upgrade package for next weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix.
McLaren need to make a significant step forward with their MP4-28 which has been off the pace in the opening rounds of the year.
Button said: “There?óÔé¼Ôäós been a lot of talk about the importance of next weekend?óÔé¼Ôäós upgrades; but, as with every upgrade, they?óÔé¼Ôäóre simply part of the series of continuous improvement that are made across the season.”
“As always, there?óÔé¼Ôäóll be elements of it that work, elements that perhaps work in a different way to what we?óÔé¼Ôäód anticipated, and elements that don?óÔé¼Ôäót work, or perhaps require further work. That?óÔé¼Ôäós life in modern Formula One.”
“So I?óÔé¼Ôäóm pragmatic about what we?óÔé¼Ôäóll discover next weekend. Of course, I?óÔé¼Ôäóm hopeful that it?óÔé¼Ôäóll move us a step closer towards the destination.”
He added the Spanish Grand Prix venue would give the team a point of reference for the changes they’ve made to the car:
“It?óÔé¼Ôäós been difficult for the team to make consistent progress through the first four races, but I think returning to a circuit where we undertook two of the pre-season tests will give us a useful benchmark of our progress so far.”
