I thought pressure is part and partial of F1? Every race there is pressure. Not sure what is different now except that they do stand an outside chance of winning the WDC.

To my mind they should shut it and deliver better results than they have been.

JB is not as quick as i thought he'd be.

Pressure here, pressure there, pressure everywhere :)

Best mates? Won't last long as Button is proving to be a more confident and competitive. If their close in the last few races you will see the Hamster crack under the pressure and they'll no longer be the siamese twins as so many photos show. These chumpy, matey photos are soo 2000.

mclaren may not (openly) operate team orders, they do however have a 'team order', all strategies will favour the quicker driver, mclaren race team (and the majority of f1 fans) know who the quicker driver of the two is

hey Martin if that were the case what happened in Monza, Singapore and Suzuka...In my opinion the guy who really showed composure under the pressure was Kimi.

No I don't call it cracking, but I never said he never has. The time I remember Kimi cracked was after the rear ending accident in the pits on the way to his garage when he was trying to show lulu red light...that was cracking...
