Button struggles at Goodwood
Button, currently in his first year of a two-year loan deal at Benetton, found things difficult in a vintage 1902 Paris-Vienna Renault and admitted he would be happy to return to the cockpit of his more advanced Renault-powered car at Silverstone next week.
"It's the most difficult thing I've driven in the whole of my life," Button joked. "It had a clutch and we don't have those things in Formula One.
"All we do is turn the steering wheel, don't we? The traction control was very good although we got a bit of wheelspin at the start. Hopefully my Renault will work better next weekend."
