Button confident of renewed challenge
Jenson Button believes he has now firmly put his problems behind him and will be up there challenging at the Belgian Grand Prix.
The 2009 champion made a good start to the season, winning the Australian Grand Prix before finishing second in China, but had gone massively off the boil since then - picking up just seven points in the next six races. Button bounced back in Germany with another runner-up finish before finishing sixth in the Hungarian Grand Prix in the last race before the mid-season break. Button is happy to accept responsibility for a 'wrong turn' over the car set-up he took after China but is confident that he is now back on the right path. "At one part of the season I went in a certain direction because I was struggling to get tyre temperature and that is my weakness," Button told Sky Sports. "So I tried a few things with the car and it was the wrong direction. That was sort of the Canada time. But we have come back from that. In the last couple of races I have been a lot happier - I think the general car is good, the updates we have put on it for the last two races have been great and I think we have done really well at getting everything together. "The guys are in the factory now working hard on making improvements for Spa and I'm really excited. Our car is working well at the moment, obviously I got a second in Hockenheim, Lewis won in Hungary and I think if we get it all together we can fight for a victory in Spa." Button goes into the first race after the break next weekend in seventh place in the drivers' world championship, 88 points behind leader Fernando Alonso.
