McLaren pair Jenson Button and Kevin Magnussen consider a lack of pace is not going to cease them vying for more podium places on Malaysia's notoriously rapid track after promising shows at the season-opener in Australia.
The two drivers were promoted to second and third in Melbourne two weeks ago after the disqualification of Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo, placing the team along with the constructors standings. mclaren for sale
On the other hand, the paddock was united in its belief on Thursday that the Mercedes pair of Nico Rosberg, who won the Albert Park race, and Lewis Hamilton, who was on pole before retiring, were ahead of the remainder as the grid gets used to the new V6 engines.
"I believe both guys in the Mercedes, it's going to be easy for their sake in terms of how competitive they'll be when compared with the rest," Button told reporters at the Sepang circuit.
"Everyone else behind I think is fighting for third. I believe there's a huge gaggle of cars that are quite close in lap times and probably in race rate too."
The 2009 world champion acknowledged the rapid Sepang track was probably not best suited to their Mercedes-powered auto but was assured that new upgrades for Sunday's race would help.
"This is a high speed circuit compared to Melbourne. That is an area where we are not at our most powerful so that does hurt us a little bit," Button said.
"The low-rate corners I think we are going to be stronger at this race that's good. It is where lots of the lap time is made up because you are in the corner for more. used mclaren
"You'd say it would be a bit more difficult here but with the upgrades we've we've to be fighting for a podium," added Button.
The only way we are going to find Mercedes is if we are developing every race we go to."
"The only thing you can hope for here is reliability problems. It is super popular. It's a rough lap on the auto," said Button who won the 2009 Malaysian race.
"You'd say that we're fighting for a podium actually and then only never understand what's going to occur to the Mercedes. (If they have) reliability problems afterward we'll obtain a better result than that."
Danish team mate Magnussen became Formula One's most successful debutant since Canadian Jacques Villeneuve in 1996 after his second place in Melbourne.
But the 21-year old spoke like an old master when he said there was little time to fete.
"I am not getting carried away with the result we had in Australia.
"We all are pushing flat out to try and get where we would like to be. We are going to shut it (the gap on Mercedes) at some point. When? I don't know."
"We are not in the situation we want to be. We have to keep driving and the great thing is I can feel everyone in the team is on an identical path.
