F1 » 'Fluffy' Button has 'hidden steel', argues Brawn

Mercedes Grand Prix team principal Ross Brawn has sprung to the defence of his former driver Jenson Button, arguing that the reigning world champion's 'hidden steel' will enable him to effectively deal with the challenge of team-mate Lewis Hamilton at McLaren-Mercedes in F1 2010

Quite a calculated statement from Mr. Brawn. That should bring up the competitive tension just a little bit at McLaren.

He knows Jense is already under presure, so why not a little bit for Lewis to think about, too?

Merc and the Brawn camp just can't help themselves with running the yapper.. If I hear one more clip from Haug,Brawn,Nico I gonna scream. Will the three of them just shut up and race. I don't know how MS is going to make it all year on a team of big mouths.

I think Ross has more insight into this than we know! Since Jenson has started work at McLaren many people have seen a slight shift in their outward projection of the drivers! Hamilton is no longer under the guiding hand of the 1 and only Dennis era, and now comes the second year of the Whitmarsh reign, a different prospect and not a time for him to "misunderstand the goals of the team"!! Coincidence that he will not have his father in the paddock this year, whereas John B will most certainly be there with JB!! :p :D

yeah just about everyone talks too much right before the race weekend. Look at pretty boy jenson with all his 'we won't give an inch to shumi' talk. also lewis the choker... he is still yapping about his lying last year.

Merc is the all time PR bull machine on the grid. Thank goodness they got their own team. From start to present it has been nothing but double talk. Even from ONE of their drivers.
