Easy to say now, but what if you're 1 point ahead of Barichello in the season finale and Rubens makes a move to pass you...

Regardless of whether Rosberg will be quicker or not next year, the chances for Button to get a WC after this year look fairly slim to me.

He must know that too.

Schumacher blatantly tried to take Villeneuve out but I think it is less black & white with the Hill incident. Hill wasn't alongside and Schumacher was on the racing line, whereas at Jerez Villeneuve was actually ahead when Schumacher turned in. I think that if the Schumacher / Hill incident happened to a pair of midfield runners it would have just been labelled a racing incident.

I don't buy the rubbish from most of Schumacher's ex team-mates either. They only had a decent car because he developed one and he whipped them because he was much faster. Irvine & Herbert especially. What did they ever do when they weren't Schumacher's teammate?

I think Rubens has a case though, looking back

Oli - got to disagree with you,I think Schummi knew what he was doing with regards to the Hill incident. He had gone off track and hit a wall, knowing he wasnt going to make it back to the pits he swiped across the track when he knew DH was there. Hill for his part should have hung back and taken MS on the next straight,the relief on Schummis face when he heard DH had to retire said it all for me. It wasnt as obvious as his move on JV but he still did it.

And that is why Button will have a tough time winning the championship - lack of a killer instinct. MS said himself when Jeremy Clarkson interviewed him: Aren't you a bit sorry for that move on Villeneuve? His answer: No, because as a racer, you do what you have to do to win.
