McLaren happy with 'shock' start
McLaren ace Jenson Button insisted he was happy with qualifying, despite starting from fourth in Sunday's Bahrain Grand Prix.
The 2009 world champion had struggled to get to grips with the set up on his MP4-27 for the Sakhir circuit, but recovered in qualifying to finish on the second row behind Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton and Mark Webber. McLaren have been focusing most of their efforts on race-running so Button insists that the team is more than happy with qualifying in second and fourth. "P4 is not too bad, it's pretty close at the front and unexpectedly we are ahead of Nico - which is a shock. We're pretty good at starts so hopefully we'll have another tomorrow," Button told Sky Sports. "You just don't know what is going to happen. "We knew that the Red Bulls would be quick in qualifying, but we didn't expect to be so far up. So not a bad day at all. Obviously, I'd prefer to be a little further up, but all in all I think we should be pretty happy."
