McLaren Mercedes head to Monaco this weekend off the back of another disappointing Grand Prix weekend at the Spanish Grand Prix at the Barcelona Circuit de Catalunya which saw neither Jenson Button or Kevin Magnussen score points for the Woking based outfit.
The team have now gone three Grand Prix in a row without scoring points and this is something that they will want to rectify in Monaco as last out in Barcelona they lost ground to the Williams Martini Racing Team who have now overtaken them in the Constructors championship and as a result of their recent form the Woking squad now find themselves in 6th place in the Constructors championship.
Speaking to their official website McLaren's Jenson Button, who won the race here in his championship winning season with Brawn in 2009 said:
'Obviously, I’ve never driven a turbocharged F1 car around Monaco before – and I’m relishing the opportunity.
McLaren Racing Director Eric Boullier is hopeful that the team can have a strong weekend in Monaco following three difficult Grand Prix for the team.
