anthony davidson also thought it strange that jb was asking the team for ideas to help, perhaps jb should have asked lewis who may have suggested 'keep your foot in (jen)son'

Button complaining about locking fronts is not due to him braking too hard, as such, it is about the car's setup, brake balance, diffs and many other factors too, some of this can be changed in the cockpit during a run. The Team are monitoring it all and running the data live through their analysis programs and may be able to advise better which way to go. Remember, different parts of the circuit often require/prefer different setups, so it is all a mix of adjustments, compromises and trade offs.

another thing i noticed, in slo mos, was the way vettel took the corners. he was driving the bull like a kart, jumping all four wheels to turn direction. the last time i saw a driver going like that, was schumi in his glory days.

sitenths. yes, there are various things that can be adjusted, but button is in control of those. he should have enough skill to be able to dial out the problem. he should not have to ask his crew, what to do. so it looks as if he may not be a good developement driver, and maybe that is why he is so much off the pace, generally.
