Briton Hamilton, champion in 2008, finished eighth while his compatriot, 2009 champion Button, could only climb as high as tenth.

When asked how close he was to matching the pace of race-winner Australian Mark Webber of Red Bull, Hamilton said, "A long way away, but we'll keep working and hopefully try and catch up.

"Today we were very, very slow in the low-speed corners and Michael (Schumacher) came past me and he was really quick in the high-speeds - my car doesn't feel that bad, but theirs must feel awesome."

The 27-year-old is now fourth in the drivers' standings, 37 points adrift of championship leader Ferrari driver Spaniard Fernando Alonso and admitted that McLaren must improve quickly if they are to stay in the title race.

"We are still in the fight, but unless we find a lot of time, it's going to be hard to stay in the fight" he said.

Despite the Englishman now being 79 points behind Alonso in the title race, he remained steadfast and believes his McLaren team have what it takes to find a solution.

He said: "There will be a lot of unhappy people here, but we're one of the best teams in the world and we can fight through this."
