Jenson Button was more than a little upset after his seventh starting position at the Nürburgring and couldn't explain why he was so slow.

Jenson Button set his sights high for the Nürburgring, but had to let through not just Red Bull and Ferrari, but Nico Rosberg's Mercedes as well, resulting in P7 on the grid. "I broke off from my lap towards the end, because I couldn't find any grip," said Button about his seventh place.
