Button: Vettel was unbeatable

Stephan Heublein

Briefly during qualifying in Shanghai, Jenson Button nursed hopes of securing pole position but soon realised that in all likelihood nothing could be done to upset Sebastian Vettel and so had to be content with second place.

"In the heat of the moment, you always hope pole is on the cards, but Sebastian's and Red Bull's pace in Q3 was phenomenal," Button said.
