F1 » McLaren entente intact despite Montreal mishap

Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton have agreed that their clash in the Canadian GP was little more than a unfortunate racing incident precipitated by the conditions.

Well done lewis, nice of you reconise your team mates accomplishment. It shows great maturity and sportsmanship. both drivers seem to be learning something from each other, button to be more aggresive and lewis to be more humble in defeat. Go team McLaren......GO BUTTON!!!!

It had to happen sooner or later, just glad it did not have any serious consequences
for either driver. Button showed with this drive that he can still get the job done which I for one had begun to doubt. Hamilton will hopefully have learned from this that trying to win the race at the first corner and driving into your teamate is not the way to win. He has now cost himself two possible good results on the trot which will be very difficult to claw back. Hopefully Button can gain a bit of momentum from his recent results but I still think the championship has gone for both of them. Next season McClaren really have to get their act together from the start of the season if they are win again soon.

It's nice that Button went to have a talk with Hamilton during the red flag session. It shows a lot of sportsmanship from both of them and this is truly what separates this pair of great drivers from the rest. This relationship would benefit both the drivers and the team. GO BUTTON, GO HAMILTON .....GO McLaren!

The 1 thing you cannot accuse JB of is being a dirty driver.
This was just 2 guys fighting it out for the same piece of tarmac in tricky conditions.
It's easy for us armchair fans to sit and point fingers but we are not the ones scraping our backsides on the floor at 200 mph in bad conditions.

Sorry old timer. It was Button who made the mistake. If he felt that it was Hamilton's fault why did he bother to apologize. I really wish these arm chair critics with their heavy handed bashing of Hamilton would take a leaf from Button and accept that it was a racing incident. Both drivers seem to agree on that. Let it be.

To, An older old timer. You say it was Buttons mistake and then go on to say it was a racing incident on which both drivers are in agreement, which is it? If anyone seriously thinks Button saw him and deliberately pushed him into the wall, well it's just plain daft. It could so easily have resulted in the end of his race as well, so why would he do that? Fantastic race and a great result for any fans of Button, for others, not so enjoyable!!

Video replays show Button saw Hamilton but still chopped him up . Do not let their smiles fool you . The desire to win is far greater than any entente between them . From now on expect a lot more fireworks between these two on track for the rest of the season .
