Despite no podium wins for McLaren in the current Formula One season, Jenson Button insists he remains motivated before the start of every race.
The 2009 world champion’s last win came at the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2012, the final race of the season.
“Even though this season has been very difficult, I still get very excited about going to a grand prix,” said Button, according to f1.co.uk. “I haven’t lost that enthusiasm even in difficult times and that makes me realise I really do love this sport. It is normal to have a tough year in your career or a tough few years.”
However, the Briton admitted that McLaren’s MP4-28 was a disappointment and a step down from the previous edition of the car.
“We made a mistake in terms of the design and development of the car over the winter, but we have changed a lot. It is amazing how quickly we have been able to adapt. But the problem now is we are a long way behind the leaders in terms of development.”
