Jenson Button can't say for sure whether he believes McLaren will be in a position to win a race in 2013 following a difficult start to the year for the Woking squad.

The MP4-28 has proven to be a difficult car to drive and currently resides in the midfield. Having failed to score a place higher than fifth in seven races, their season is beginning to echo that of 2009.

It took until the tenth race for Lewis Hamilton to score the teams first victory that year. He went on to win another a few races later.

When asked, Button said he wasn't confident McLaren would challenge for victory in 2013 - which would be their first winless season since 2006.

"No one knows the answer to that," he told The Guardian. "It's pointless for me to try and answer. I don't know if we're going to win a race this year.

"I'm still in a great team, probably the best team to find your way out of a situation like this. It will happen. It just takes time," he added.

"We have a lot of talented people in this team, people who will find answers, and find a way back to the front. And it will be so much sweeter when it happens."
