Montoya backs away from Button comparison
The Colombian believes that the only parallels that can be drawn is the fact that they have both driven for BMW-Williams.
"You can't compare it because a car counts for so much of it," said Montoya.
Montoya has scored points in just two of the 10 races this year after a series of non-retirements while Button has struggled with an under-performing Benetton squad.
Montoya said: "It's impossible to compare yourself with anybody because every case is different. Jenson had a tougher time at the beginning of last year because it was the first year with BMW and everything, and he still did a good job.
"But I'm also pretty pleased with what I've done, two podiums, I can't complain about."
