New Delhi:  Expect Jenson Button to come out hard for McLaren in the F1 2013 season. According to a report published in Britain's ITN.com, the 32-year-old is looking to mould the car around him after the exit of Lewis Hamilton.

Hamilton's move to Mercedes after three seasons with Button as teammate means that Sergio Perez will come in as a replacement. While Button has said previously that he is looking forward to racing with Perez, he also seems to be ready to done a larger role and dish out stronger performances for McLaren in the next season. "I really enjoy being the lead driver and being the guy who can really help the team improve the car and sort of mould the car around me," he was quoted as saying in the report.

Button raked in 188 points in the recently concluded season. He was fifth in the drivers' championship standing and had three wins to show for his efforts, including the season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix.
