World Championship leader Jenson Button believes that he can become the first driver to win the Turkish Grand Prix without starting from pole position after losing out to Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel in qualifying for tomorrow's race.
The Brawn driver took pole from Mark Webber late in the session, but was edged out by one tenth of a second by Vettel's last-gasp effort.
Despite pole position starters having won all four Turkish GPs to date, Button is confident that he can buck the trend.
"I'm looking forward to the race," said Button. "Every pole position man here has won, so we aim to change that. You can overtake here, so we will have fun tomorrow."
The 29-year-old added that he had struggled to find the best setup for his Brawn-Mercedes throughout practice, but that he always knew that he would be able to find front-running pace.
"I enjoy this circuit, and that's why I found it tough when we arrived here and couldn't find the right balance," said Button. "When one person in the team is doing good laps, it's find because you know the car has it. You just have to find it.
"Yesterday was a tough day for everyone. It was so windy and we couldn't get a balance with the car, but today with some changes to the setup and wind calmed down the car seemed much better.
"After practice, it was quite difficult to see what tires to run in qualifying. On prime didn't have much feeling so wasn't sure. We did the right thing in staying with it in Q3 and not chopping and changing so I could get on with my work. We worked all the way through the day, and are pleased with front row and great place to be for tomorrow."
Despite having missed out on taking a hat-trick of pole positions, Button added that he was not surprised to have been knocked off top spot by a Red Bull.
"The races before were the same," said Button. "These guys are doing a very good job and we are also. It is about getting the best out of the equipment -- let's see for the race.
