Jenson Button says that the new McLaren MP4-28 is the best the team has made – and is adamant that this will be a better season than the last.

“This year’s car is the best we’ve ever made,” said Button. “I know the engineers have left absolutely no stone unturned in wringing every ounce of performance from every available area. I cannot wait to get behind the wheel and attempt to carry forward the incredible legacy that lives beneath the skin of every single man and woman who works at McLaren.

“We were extremely strong throughout the whole of the 2012 season, but, for one reason or another, we couldn’t quite pull it all together to challenge for the championships. That’s something we want to address for 2013. I’ve seen just how closely everybody has been working together on this car, and I think we’ve got the basis for a very strong season.

“We’ll be working extremely hard during the pre-season to ensure we go to the first race with bulletproof reliability. Operationally, too, I think we’ve learned and developed from last year, and that will help us run a much smoother and stronger campaign.”

Button also had some comments on his new team mate.

“Obviously, the biggest change for 2013 is my new team-mate, Checo. It’s always interesting and inspiring to begin working with a new face, and it already feels like a very positive working relationship.

“I know from personal experience that it can feel initially daunting when you walk into the McLaren Technology Centre for the very first time, but I also remember how quickly I was made to feel at home and how welcoming I found the whole McLaren family. I’m sure Checo already feels very much at ease here.”

  1. Stone the crows

    They were very quick last year, but a bit on the unreliable side early on, if the -28 is an evolution of the -27 they ought to still have similar pace. The question is as usual have the rest done their due dilligence to be as quick or quicker than Mclaren? It will be interesting to see what Button and Perez can do, and it will be nice to have a relatively drama-free Mclaren for a change.
