My nigga bro... Jenson is lame in qualifying doesn't makes he is lame in race It is just the car don't we are agree? Fernando alonso is talented too and he's not in top 10 cuz of the mclaren Honda sucks
Reply-to:Button & Hamilton had 3 seasons together at McLaren. Button scored more points in total than Hamilton. Say what you want about qualifying and fastest laps but its the points that get you the prizes, simple. Not bad for a guy who came to a team built around the other driver. Hamiltons great but Button is equally great. Their strengths arent the same but as I said, what matters is the points at the end of the season.
Strengths are the same??? In what sport? Cycling? How about the numbers speaking instead of judging by personal liking or likability. Hamilton has 40 wins in 160 F1 races. Button has started 280 F1 races but has 15 wins. And how many poles for Button? 8, with only 1 for his current team. Match that with Hamilton's 49. In the real world, Button, as a champion, is an underachiever.
Some people are just ignorant. A really great driver. He admitted that Hamilton was a better qualifier, but outscored him in races with his smooth and calculating driving style. And Hamilton is in my opinion the best driver on the grid, alongside Alonso, who is also struggling with the current Mcclaren car. So don't call him a bad and overrated driver, cause he isn't.
Reply-to:Button always trying to critisise the team and the car and his team mate and the balance. He is the most political driver ever and the most incapable of driving a car that is not planted on rails. High speed tracks are not our forte but then no tracks are our forte he says when the team get a good team result at Silverstone. How does anyone motivate themselves hearing that? Whereas Kevin says great job to the team back at the factory for getting the new rear wing made and the team here for installing it and getting it working so quickly. Button blames his balance as always for being rubbish, slimy backstabbing, talentless arsehole.
The only slimy backstabbing, talentless arsehole around here is you

Erm I think you will find that the most vital part of your statistics i.e. Points is where Jenson wins so you look a bit stupid now don't you

Reply-to:Button is a smart driver and his skills is undeniably good if you look at how often he starts in the back and ends up near the front. His car has been shitty the past years, and it is taking a toll on him. It doesnt look like hes enjoying it anymore... his body language shows it.
He often starts at the back because of his lack of speed in qualifying (remember B. Senna?). Only reason why climbs into the top 6-7 at the end of the race is because he drives a McLaren, which shouldn't dealing in the midfield . He relies on strategy to make up for his inferior driving skills. Don't you find it weird that ever since L. Hamilton left, the team had dropped further down the grid?
Reply-to:Yeah agree. Jenson once said inexperienced driver hurts McLaren. Looks like the one hurts McLaren most from the beginning is Jenson button, the so called most experienced driver. Hes bringing McLaren down to Benetton, Brawn levels. Jenson must be replaced or someone manage him & help him articulating strategy.
Bringing them down to Brawn levels, what the team that one the Drivers world championship and the Constructers world championship in their first season of formula one? Im pretty sure McLaren would love it if Jenson could drag them downwards to those low low levels of winning races. I mean what F1 team wouldn't want to be winning?
