Honda admits fault for winless Button

Sat, 10 June 2006, 11:22

Honda has leapt to the rescue of Jenson Button, as the pressure of once again not winning his home race piles onto the Briton.

Team principal Nick Fry admitted that it is ‘up to us’ to give Button, and his Brazilian teammate Rubens Barrichello, a winning car.

”Our rate of development has dropped behind our competitors,” he confessed to the Guardian.

Fry continued: ”I think we started the year with a good car but our rate of development has not been good enough.”

26-year-old Button appeared disillusioned in the face of renewed queries at Silverstone about how a talented driver could be stranded for so long without a win to his name.

He said: ”Numbers mean nothing. What does a number mean? Nothing at all.

”(The win) might not happen until next year or even the year after.”gmmf1
