Button Hoping to See Improvements in France

Wednesday June 27th, 2001

Jenson Button is confident his Benetton car will improve for the next two rounds in France and Britain as he bids to move away from the back of the grid.

Briton Button, who after last weekend's European Grand Prix was linked to a move to Jaguar for 2003, is confident that set-up changes to the Benetton car will make a difference at Magny Cours and Silverstone. The 21-year old said that he is starting to have more of an input into the set-up of his car as his experience with the team grows race by race, and that it will be key to getting better results.

"It's good, a definite improvement and we'll definitely see that in the next races, especially the next two - Magny Cours and Silverstone," said Button. "Normally I like a car that understeers but it's been very difficult trying to find a car that can understeer but not too much and be stable on the rear as well, it's difficult finding that on this car.

"It's not true (that the team prevented him from going his way on set-up)," he added. "I've just started going my own way and I think that's going to help.

Button has endured a less than impressive season this year since joining Benetton on loan from BMW-Williams. His best qualifying performance has been 16th on the grid in Australia and his best finish so far is seventh in a depleted field at the Monaco Grand Prix.
