F1 » Button has put his balls on the line, says Coulthard


As a man who has raced against both of them before hanging up his grand prix helmet just over a year ago, David Coulthard suggests defending world champion Jenson Button has 'put his balls on the line' in going directly up against Lewis Hamilton at McLaren-Mercedes in F1 2010

Coulthard was #2 at McLaren because he made himself a constant #2 by being mostly slower than Hakkinnen not because he was held back by the team?!? That goes for Heikki vs Lewis too.

Apart from Jean Todt @ Ferrari & Flavio nobody MADE anybody #2 at any team.

Christ! What is the matter with these blow-hards? Button and Shumacher made their choices they did what they think is best for themselves who are these so-called experts that think they can second guess someone's decision? Pure jealousy is eating these people if LH was that great why didn't he win the Championship? They will be driving identical cars and if the car is as good as the former Brawn, JB aught to be able to hold his own otherwise he should just retire like Mr. Know-It-All-Coulhard-The-Blowhard

They better get over talking about in team conflict. Ferrari is almost finished with their car. Just putting in seats. One of the first teams to announce that it is nearly done.

Coulthard may well be right. He has experienced the team orders and driver favouritism that goes on in McLaren. An interview with Coulthard in F1 racing magazine from either November or October makes interesting reading when he is talking about his McLaren days.
