The boss of the gin and tonic in hand brigade really found his true side now, it goes to show that most of the British F1 fans/Mclaren supporters/and the Mclaren team itself were supporting L U L U just because they couldn't do otherwise, but now that another British hope is in with a chance they really settled where their heart really beats, if Button wins Silverstone and the WC L U L U will be dealt a blow that he will find hard to recover from.

jb is just too cool, lh may be doing an alonso if he hasnt managed to shake button and the red bulls over the next couple of races, toys, rattles, bottles and dummies will be flying out of mclaren's top of the range pram

Maybe so Sunny but Lewis has shown to be the more faster and aggressive driver time and time again. Not only will Jenson have to up the pace but also overtake and get through traffic better and not rely of pit stops and strategy to help him. It's no secret he won his 2 races on strategy and he may could have got 2nd last race if he would have overtaken Kobi instead of waiting for him to pit.

raw dawg. ever hear about the hare and the tortoise?? sometimes the quieter, less agressive approach is best. but hill is right, there is a certain coolness evidenced betwee the two, who wins, i dont know, but i would tend to believe that button may prevail.

The only thing jb has proven so far this season is with a bit of luck and a quick car you can win races and maybe with some misfortune to his main rivals might even defend his wdc, sure he can sit and just wait until then but he wont win any admiration from me I want to see jb attack and put some pressure and not let lh do all the work. I have nothing against jb much better then hk but he got to start racing especially against lh. The current points might be close but from what I seen on track is that lh is way ahead of jb, the only other driver I see in the same league as lh is fa.

I bet Lewis would do whatever it takes to stop Jenson winning the race/title and vice versa. In that process some bad blood will spill. Remember Sebastain's (mis)adventure into Mark? Honestly, competitive fights will be good for the sport from the fun/suspense/drama elements perspective and best value to the money.
