This is all my doing. Ross was on holiday and left me to do Jensons contract negotiations.Well, I totally buggered it all up and now I'm going to make things as difficult as I can for Jenson because I'm a petty little man who is trying to deflect attention away from himself.What's that Norbert ,you need your slippers and another cup of tea, okay, I'll be right there. :)

Brawn have found themselves one of the most likeable teams on the grid and now resort to these childish tactics, the mind boggles as to what they hope to achieve (unless of course it's all that little scrote Nick Fry's doing, in which case I wouldn't be in the least bit surprised) :rolleyes:

I can understand why they're doing this and why they're annoyed that Button signed for McLaren while still technically in a contract with Brawn, he has just won the championships with them and naturally they want to do all the PR stuff but who's going to look at him promoting Mercedes now that he's signed with McLaren. They must have lost potential money from it?

Brawn and Fry have taken the (Mercedes) Brawn team from being the publics favorite to a nasty, petty and thoroughly unlikeable team in a matter of days.
They offered Button, the WDC lest we forget, a derisory offer to stay. When he went to Mclaren they cried breach of contract and 'claimed' they would have offered 12 million (yeah, right)
Some claim they couldn't have originally offered more because they were negotiating with Mercedes. Yes they could, they could have made it conditional that Button stayed on a WDC salary.
Brawn and Haug have made a huge PR mistake that they will be lucky to recover from. Add to the mix the small-minded Fry and you are looking at a PR disaster.

Ruben's contract was for 4 races only. Then he was to be reviewed and allowed to run the rest of the races. He was only paid 500K. I wonder how well the Button contract was written as there was NOTHING for the driver in it. I really wonder if the speedy contract actually had anything in it to say he could not do what he wanted. Heck, he washed his own drivers suit. He may not be breaking any contract, as tight a$$ Ross probably didn't wanted to pay for the ink. Plus it is no longer Ross's team. It's Merc...
