Formula One ace Jenson Button qualified in third position for the German Grand Prix today – after struggling to get heat into his tyres again.
It was a repeat of the problem the Brawn GP driver had with his tyres during the British Grand Prix at Silverstone when he finished a disappointing sixth.
But Button is hoping for a better result today when he takes off behind Mark Webber, who has secured his maiden pole position of the season, and his Brawn team mate Rubens Barrichello in second place.
After the chaotic weather-affected qualifying session yesterday, Button said: “Tomorrow is going to be an interesting one.
“Weather looks similar to today so it’s a little bit of luck, but also looking at what everyone else is doing and trying to make the best out of the situation.”
However, it was a better day for reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton who will start from fifth place, powered by significant improvements to his McLaren.
“We won’t take it for granted but we’re going to enjoy it,” he said. “The guys have worked so hard and it’s so much better. It’s a great result for us.”
