McLaren-Honda break into the top ten in Monaco for the first time this season

(McLaren Honda)

McLaren Honda’s incredibly hard work in recent weeks and months appears to paying off as Jenson Button will for the first time this season start a race from the top ten.

The 2009 world champion had originally qualified in 12th place for the Monaco Grand Prix which in itself was a massive improvement in performance for the Woking based outfit however he will now start the race from 10th place after the Lotus F1 Team’s Romain Grosjean received a five place grid penalty for a gearbox change.

It has also been confirmed in the last hour or so that Scuderia Toro Rosso’s Carlos Sainz will start the race from the pit-lane as punishment for missing the FIA weighbridge at the end of Q1 promoting Button into the top ten.
