F1 » Button: I’ll go to Japan pretty happy

Jenson Button: My championship hopes were dented a little bit by Mark [Webber] finishing ahead of me, but the points gap to the front is just a race victory away. It shows there's still everything to play for – one bad race can cost you a lot of points.

another good race from Jenson, as usual :o)

Just disapointed about that gift to his team mate coz Jenson was clearly ahead of Lewis before braking into that 1st corner at the start.

@Calvin: you cannot be serious! Are you genuinely looking for signs that the WDC doesn't want to win a race? What a sad bizarre planet you must be living on. Come on now, crack a smile for me... that's better :-)

well said Beeflin.

what is wrong with you people. If you've not got something constructive to say dont say it.... If you met any of these people face to face you'd not have the balls to say this to them as chances are you've not got off your fat backside anyway as your an armchair fan who eats crips all day long and spends the rest of your time w@@king over internet p0rn.
I'm not a fan of LH, FA or MSc but i certainly wouldn't want to waste my time bashing them on some pointless website.
Besides I'll bet JB doesnt care for your opinion anyway.He's got a few million in the bank, a dream job and shags fit women. what have YOU done with your life?

To Beeflin & MondayBlues:
Damn right!
These guys are our hero's and have dream jobs. They race cars for money for efsake.. Why do half the people who comment on this site not realise that we are dealing with RocketMen not Rocket Scientists?
Two peddles: one says 'Stop' & the other 'Go'
One Steering wheel: use it to go around corners
Now go out there and go really really fast - good boy..

To all the haters out there - Just get over it!

Sorry guys, but to me, JB was just happy trundling around the circuit. His times may have been dropping, or else why would his pit have tried to gee him up by telling him to push to the end. Should he not have been doing it anyway? When I hear that kind of pit call, it sounds to me like the driver has started to settle for his position.

Same with SV. He said he pushed as hard as he could. Yes, in the last couple of laps maybe, when he was all over FA for a while, but before that? Didn't look like it.

25 September . . . McLaren newcomer and

this season, said his

better at the wheel of
an unbalanced car, and

"I need a car that is
more stable than he
does. In that respect
Lewis is very strong,"
Button said in an
interview with The
But the Briton insists he
has not been destroyed
this year by 25-year-old
Hamilton, who was
groomed by McLaren
since he was a boy.
"Overall I think it's been
very close with Lewis.
But I am behind him,
not in front. So
qualifying is something
that I still need to work
on," Button
Some figures in the
paddock believe that
Button was effectively
ousted by Brawn at the
end of last year as the
