BBC Sport - Russian Grand Prix: McLaren's Jenson Button 'downbeat'

Button 'downbeat' despite qualifying 4th

McLaren driver Jenson Button gives a despondent interview despite a strong performance, securing fourth spot on the grid in qualification for the Russian Grand Prix.

Button says his car was "nowhere" in third practice in Sochi before qualifying fourth behind Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, and the Williams of Valtteri Bottas.

BBC Sport's F1 commentator David Coulthard says he was "surprised" by Button flat reaction, while pundit Eddie Jordan describes the former world champion as "downbeat".
