McLaren should not play blame game, says Button
Jenson Button says McLaren must take measured steps to address their disastrous season in Formula One.
London: Jenson Button says McLaren must take measured steps to address their disastrous season in Formula One and not resort to singling out individuals for blame. McLaren, for so long one of Formula One's big hitters, will go into next Sunday's "home" British Grand Prix at Silverstone without a realistic chance of winning.
"It's not one person's problem. No one within the team deserves to get fired over what has happened this year. I think we have made a mistake as a team, and it is not good enough. Of course not. But as long as we learn from this mistake and it makes us a better team, you will see a much stronger McLaren next season," Button said
"Yes, this year is disappointing. It looks bad from the outside and it's tough from the inside. But I am not the only one who feels that. It is several hundred people at the factory. They don't see the glory when we stand on top of the podium. They just feel the pain when we don't do well. Going in and shouting at the top of my voice - fair enough, it shows my pain - but it probably causes everyone else's morale and confidence to drop .
"There is no point in doing that. You have to go in and say what you think in the right way, and the right manner, as a grown up. Because I am intelligent I realise that shouting and screaming at people won't help the situation," he added.
