F1 » Briatore: Button been lucky so far, not one of F1's quickest

Jenson Button might be leading the world championship once again as the F1 2010 circus returns to Europe this weekend, but the McLaren-Mercedes star's efforts and victories thus far this season have clearly not impressed everyone...

you're right flav, he has been lucky, not as lucky as alonso though eh? Imagine, you qualify well down, pit unusually early instead of brimming the tank and pushing like hell, then your team mate hits the wall and you win the race, I mean, what are the chances of that!?!......

Just another fat and bitter old man. I seem to remember the rumour that he tried to re-sign Jesson a year or so back, and Jesson rightly said "s*d off", so he is clearly still narked at that. Didn't he also stick it on Johnny Herbert as well, back in the late 80s, when he took over Benetton (Herbert was still recovering from massive leg injuries at the time)? Didn't he also try to pull James Cracknell's wife (Beverley Turner) when she was working for ITV F1? What a plank. I know F1 needs personalities but please Falv, go "play" football. Oh and Crash...you know how to wind me up!!!

Fortunately, F1 is not just about who is the quickest driver. If it was, then no one would EVER complain about processional races, because that would be the epitome of quickest qualifier being quickest in the race. And P2-P26 following suit.

It is about the car, tyre wear, strategy, fuel consumption, aero efficiency, and driver decisions.

Although I would like to point out that Jenson made a pretty "quick" decision NOT to change to inters in China that won him that race!
