Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Jen­son But­ton has put his re­tire­ment from the Bahrain Grand Prix down as sheer bad luck af­ter it ended a promis­ing week­end. But­ton had im­pressed by go­ing third fastest in prac­tice. He was run­ning inside the top 10 be­fore be­ing forced to stop with a fail­ure of the en­ergy re­cov­ery sys­tems. “It’s un­be­liev­able how un­lucky we were,” said But­ton. “It was the best po­si­tion we’ve been in for a while on out­right pace. Oth­ers were mak­ing mis­takes and we could have taken ad­van­tage, but we didn’t have the re­li­a­bil­ity.”
