Nevertheless, Button claimed the new car is "very different". He said can not wait to drive the new car for the first time. He wanted to sit behind the wheel of McLaren MP4-28 in testing the official pre-season at Jerez on Tuesday (5/2).
"The winter is long but fun," said the British rider, world champion in 2009.
"But Formula One driver want to drive back and feel the speed again.
"For this to be an interesting couple of weeks, build a car and finally saw one last night. It may look like a car last year, but under the skin is completely different.
"That's why it's so appealing. They have changed enough to make a difference. You are entering a season with the goal of winning the World Championship and that's what we did."
