Melbourne, Mar 25(ANI): Reigning Formula One champion Jenson Button has hinted that local hero Mark Webber has the best chance of winning the Australian Grand Prix this weekend at Albert Park.

Button said Webber and the Red Bull cars were extremely quick, despite their eighth place finish in last Sunday's Bahrain Grand Prix.

"I think he will be quick here. I don't think you saw the best of Mark in Bahrain. I think he will be more competitive here in front of the home crowd," The Age quoted Button, as saying.

"The last race for him was not that great, but I think he'll be quick here. He's quick and he's dedicated and that's the thing about Mark. He's focused and he won't stop until he wins."

"Hopefully for him he'll have a good weekend, hopefully for me he doesn't. You'd have to say the Red Bulls are very strong. The Red Bulls and the Ferraris were so quick in Bahrain," he added.

The 30-year-old further said the drivers would look to have an exciting race this time, as the Bahrain race was "not the most exciting from a fan's point of view".

"I think we can improve it and it takes all of us to look at what happened and not get too worried about it and hope that this race is better - this one and the next race, in Malaysia," Button said.

"After that we can't just point fingers. We all need to work on improving the spectacle if it's not there, but hopefully it will be," he added. (ANI)
