McLaren's racing duo have disagreed about how the early development of the 2010 car impacted the pecking order at the British team this season.

Jenson Button, whose decision to switch to the Woking based team this year was made late, explained at Suzuka that he is expecting a better 2011 season.

"The fact is when I arrived in January the car was already built," said the reigning world champion, who qualified two tenths behind his teammate Lewis Hamilton on Sunday morning.
