McLaren driver Jenson Button has acknowledged that qualifying has not been his strong point this season, stating that he will be looking for an improvement starting with the Canadian Grand Prix.
Button, who has started the last two races from 10th and 12th on the grid, has struggled with balance at times this season, amassing just two points from the last three races.
However, as reported by Autosport, the former world champion is hoping to turn it around with a decent showing at the track where he was victorious last year.
“Obviously, returning to Montreal will be an extremely proud and happy moment for me," he said.
"This weekend, though, it's going to be important to get a handle on the car in qualifying.
“At the last two races, Q2 hasn't gone my way, so, no matter what pace you have in the race, you're still compromised on Sunday afternoon, particularly as the pack is so tightly bunched at the moment.
"My aim for the weekend will be to have a stronger qualifying performance and to be able to build on that in the race."
Button started the season strongly with a convincing win at the Australian Grand Prix. He followed this up with a second place in China, and looked like stamping his authority on the championship.
However, the Briton has appeared to lose his way in recent weeks, something his team-mate Lewis Hamilton believes is happening to the whole McLaren team.
After the Monaco Grand Prix, the 2008 world champion warned the team that they are starting to fall behind as the likes of Red Bull and Ferrari integrate new updates to their cars.
