And isn't it an indication of the type of racer & man that JB is, that instead of a financial bonus, he wants one of the cars that he drove to success, a very personal reward...

JB +1
RB -1

The writing was already on the wall when they offered Rosberg more money than the current World Champion. Fry was mouthing off that Jenson wasn't worth the money and that £4M was all that was on the table. Well done Jenson, you cant work or trust people with no morals or honour. Ross Brawn went down in my estimation with his stalling of re-signing JB, and now I have zero respect for him,and Fry is just a company weazel.The thing is they lost the #1 plate and that must hurt especially as it went to McLaren. Well done Jenson, I never doubted you.

I have always believed in Karma. It might sound crazy but it works. I have a sneaky feeling that a Mr.Jenson Button does as well. He did everything right to keep that team going and look what he got a WDC! I dont think Mr. Brawn does though, he seems to keep trying to screw people and look where it has gotten him. Hmmmmm........He might want to take a lesson from Jenson :)
