Jenson Button has called on Honda to resolve the problems with his car which cost him a good finish in the opening Grand Prix of the season in Bahrain.

A fault with the clutch stopped Button finishing on the podium and he said: "We just have to sort our cars out.

"If we solve that we are going to be challenging with the top two teams.

"If there is any issue like that it costs you massively. We are not going to take it lightly, we will look at everything and it won't happen again."

He added: "At least we are not coming away from last weekend with this issue and not being quick - we definitely have the speed compared to the top cars, it's the quickest we've ever been."

Button is looking forward to bouncing straight back at the next Grand Prix in Malaysia on Sunday.

"The hot conditions really suit our car," he said.

"It's a good circuit, a lot of fun. You need very good aerodynamics and that's good for us because our car is very aero-based.
