Button: Points are 'stepping stone'

Jenson Button says scoring McLaren's first points of the season is a "stepping stone" for the team, after he finished eighth at the Monaco Grand Prix.

The points in Monte Carlo represent remarkable progress with their car, which was five seconds off the pace during qualifying for the opening race in Australia.

Button's team-mate Fernando Alonso was on course to follow Button home, but retired with a gearbox failure on lap 42.
