The body language said it all. Jenson Button had built up expectations ahead of his home race that McLaren were going to attack Red Bull and give their fans something to cheer about. "Right now, I'm just disappointed," said Button shortly after qualifying.

"That may change in a couple of hours, but at the moment, I'm lost for words. We've had a lot of updates and intended to be closer to Red Bull, but instead we seem to have gone backwards, and Ferrari are suddenly streets ahead of us."
