So would all the people who said it was sour grapes and Brawn is this Brawn is that admit they were WRONG!
Here it is from the horses mouth, not Brawns fault!
Or Fry or Haug or Mercedes!!!!

Jenson jumping where he shouldnt have, I hope Lewis spanks your bottom like the naughty boy you are!

button made a wrong call, expecting mclaren to better brawns offer. they didnt, but brawn pulled the carpet from under buttons feet, so button had no option but to sign with mclaren. whats the old saying?? you reap what you sow. he is now tryig to show a brave face.

I wouldn't be complaining if i were being paid £6m a year to drive around a McLaren Mercedes F1 car after being crowned world champion. How anyone can say he's made a bad decision has to be a bit delusional if you ask me.

Enjoy your last years in F1 Jenson, you deserve it after the crap you've put up with.

Fair play to Jenson, as a world champ you can't hide and he's not. Brawn did good but they're German now and I say get behind the Brit boys at MAC.
Best thing to happen in F1 for yonks..

So he's getting less money at Mcl. What sort of Agent does JB have exactly? Badly advised or what!!. I could'nt understand why the "grandee's" of F1 were so down on his move to Mcl. Now, I think I know, leave a winning team who you know, join a new team on less money and try to outdrive a pure racer like LH?? Good move that one then.

Completely off topic, but why do the writers at Crash always feel the need to put some snappy name in front of any person / teams name? Countless number of times do we see Frome Born Ace, Stevenage Born Ace, the Regie, Silver Arrows etc. Does anyone else find this weird/annoying?
