We were powerless to stop F1 Red Bull, says Button

SHANGHAI (AFP) –
Jenson Button admits he was powerless to stop Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber from dominating the Chinese Grand Prix, and is now focused on ways to halt them in Bahrain this week.


Germany’s Vettel won the rain-hit race in a one-two finish ahead of Australian teammate Webber, with championship leading Button finishing third for Brawn GP ahead of his stablemate Rubens Barrichello.


“We couldn’t challenge these people (Vettel and Webber), who were immensely quick, but it is great to score six points which is important for the consistency,” said Button, who won the opening two races of the season.


He added that after his wins in Australia and Malaysia the car was not performing as well, but insisted that would be fixed ahead this week’s fourth round of the world championships.


Team chief Ross Brawn has made clear he has lofty goals this year, saying third and fourth places was a “good result for the championship.”
