During the morning's free practice session, Jenson Button had still been professing himself satisfied with his car. But in the crucial third segment of qualifying, he found himself struggling with oversteer.
While Lewis Hamilton will be starting from third place in tomorrow's European Grand Prix, Jenson Button could manage no better than sixth. "This is not good," said Button. "In fact, it's frustrating." In Q2, the McLaren MP4-26 had still felt fine, but in the final segment, the car developed oversteer.
