Jenson Button desperate for change of luck

Jenson Button is hoping his historic 200th grand prix in Hungary this weekend will bring about an end to his run of wretched form.

The milestone is all the more significant as the Hungaroring is the scene of Button's maiden Formula One victory in 2006.

But the 31-year-old goes into the race wondering when his luck might turn as the last three races since his rousing victory in Canada have been a disaster.

"The frustrating thing is in leading up to Canada I had a great race in Barcelona, a great one in Monaco, and then obviously a great one in Canada," Button said.

"But since then it's been crap. The pace wasn't there in Valencia, then at Silverstone the wheel fell off, and in Germany I had a hydraulics failure, so it's not been great. All I can do now is hope we get some reliability for the next few races."
