F1 » Button: I suffered for looking after my tyres in Turkey

Jenson Button reflects that he was effectively punished for having driven 'a clean, strong race' and taken care of his tyres in last weekend's Turkish Grand Prix in Istanbul - but he tips McLaren-Mercedes to bounce back in Barcelona

So essentially he chose to drive his car slower than everyone else and as a result came further down the order than he could have.

maybe drive a bit faster next time Jenson!!!

Let's see - you have KERS which is what - 80HP boost for 6 seconds a lap - you have the adjustable rear wing but you can only use that at one place on a race track during a race and only if you're within one second of the car in front of you - you have a limited number of sets of tires and you must use at least one set of tires from both types - you are limited to 18,000 RPM's - an engine has to last "x" number of races - a transmission has to last "Y" number of races.

So what's contrived about all that!
