Mar.10 (GMM) Jenson Button is confident that, despite fielding a slow car in winter testing, Honda can move forwards in 2008.
Although the Japanese team did not appear to have turned around its disastrous 2007 form with the RA108 in the recently concluded pre-season period, Button says the big difference compared to last year is that the new car is showing signs of improving."The basic car was not very fast when we first drove it, but it's improving," he told the British broadcaster ITV.Button admits that the RA108 is "definitely not" going to be challenging the front-runners this year."But we're improving and that's the main thing," said the 28-year-old."It's nice to see progress in testing -- it's been a while," the Briton smiled.
