The Spanish GP is always considered a critical race early in the F1 season, with teams introducing car upgrades in a bid to aid performance.
And Button believes 2019's edition will be no different, with the Englishman posting on Instagram prior to his departure to Spain:
Mercedes' immaculate start to the new season with four successive one-twos means there is again particular scrutiny on Ferrari heading into this weekend's event. The Scuderia have responded to their rivals' form by introducing an engine upgrade two races earlier than planned, in addition to further car tweaks to build on their new package used in Baku.
"The results seem to paint a relatively clear picture, but the truth is that they're too flattering. The performance has fluctuated in the first four races," insisted Mercedes boss Toto Wolff this week.
"We had the fastest car in Australia and China, but we won in Bahrain thanks to our reliability when we were on the back foot in terms of speed. And while our race pace looked good in Azerbaijan, we were never able to build a truly comfortable gap to our rivals."
Sunday's race begins at 2.10pm with build-up from 12.30pm, while Saturday's qualifying coverage is at 1pm for a 2pm start.
