Jenson Button’s win in the season-finale Brazilian Grand Prix has given McLaren a boost for 2013, confident that it can carry the form into a new campaign next year.

Dogged by reliability issues through the year, the British team finished third in the constructors’ championship despite winning as many races as champions Red Bull, with both recording seven victories each.

Button won the season-opening Australian Grand Prix in March and his triumph in Brazil was his third of the 2013 campaign.

“This is the perfect way for us to end the season. We started on a high and we’ve had ups and downs, and to end on a high is fantastic. It bodes very well for 2013,” reckoned the Briton.

The 2009 world champion, who finished third in the drivers’ standings, has now scored more podium places in the three seasons he has driven for McLaren (25) than he had scored in the ten seasons he raced for his previous teams (24).

McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh echoed Button’s sentiments for next year.

“We’ve won the season’s last two Grands Prix, both wins the result of our car’s sheer pace, and that achievement gives us an extremely solid platform from which to develop our 2013 car over the next few months in readiness for the new season,” Whitmarsh said.
