McLaren Formula One (F1) ace Jenson Button is confident that the motorsport's new range of Pirelli tyres can help in his bid to finally win a second world championship.
The Brit was last at the top of the pecking order in F1 back in 2009 when racing the Brawn-Mercedes, but has since being pipped to the post by Red Bull star Sebastian Vettel for the past three seasons running.
However, Button believes that the new 2013 McLaren MP4-28 car, complete with brand-new Pirelli tyres, has the capability to be a championship-winning vehicle in the upcoming campaign.
The new Pirelli products have been designed to offer grip at a wider range of temperatures, while also wearing faster when out on the track.
Commenting on these design features, Button said: "The tyres are very different in 2013. I'm sure they look pretty similar but the feeling is very different and the idea is to have a tyre that works a lot easier in terms of temperature with a wider range and degrades more.
"Hopefully we will see more pit stops and both of us will enjoy that. I feel this will work better for my style of driving and how the MP4-28 works."
The 2013 F1 season gets underway on March 17th with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.
