Jenson Button hopes for rain-affected race at Malaysian Grand Prix
Jenson Button admits that – unless weather plays a part – he does not expect a better showing at this weekend's Malaysian Grand Prix after a disappointing start to the season in Australia.
The Frome Flyer could only finish ninth in Melbourne on Sunday and McLaren colleague Sergio Perez was outside of the points in 11th, leaving plenty of work for the team to do.
They have little time to make changes, with just a one-week turnaround from the Australian GP ahead of the Malaysian race, which takes place on Sunday, but Button insists McLaren will put in every effort to make the car more competitive.
"Australia was obviously a tough weekend and, despite getting the maximum out of the car, it's still clearly not where we want to be," said Button.

"There's a lot of work to be done but we all know that this team won't stop working until they get it right.
"For this weekend, I don't think we can expect an improvement in our fortunes, but the thing about Malaysia is that it can be so unpredictable – particularly with the later start time on Sunday afternoon, which tends to see late-afternoon showers fall.
"We saw that last year, when Fernando won, and we know that the unpredictable weather can make it a lottery for everyone.
"That's something that could play into our hands – I do enjoy driving in changeable conditions, and would love the challenge of being able to run competitively in a car that we all know is not quite capable of challenging for victories yet."
