Luck ? LOL

You need PACE way way more than luck.

The conditions jumbled things up, but Jenson won the race the old fashioned way, he was simply way quicker than everybody else.

So much quicker that crashes and penalties were water off a ducks back to him.

One of the greatest races I have ever had the privilege of witnessing, thank you Jenson, McLaren, Pirelli.

To put it all down to luck is to disrespect a brilliant driver who had a fantastic drive. Button had as much bad luck as good in the race. In the end it was his skill and determination that won out.

Also I want to say something about Vettel's post race interview. Not once did he acknowledge Button's performance. Instead he talked about how he led all the way and how he should have won blah blah blah. A little bit of grace in defeat would go a long way.

Let the guy have his moment !

The racing element was by far the best we've seen for ages ( in the pits or out on the track ).

I agree. Moe like this please !

And where are all the Button bashers now btw ? ! ? !

I always thought that Hamilton was a quicker driver than Button, and maybe he is on pure pace, but when it comes to fast, intelligent driving, then Button wins, hands-down! I've been watching GP racing since about 1963 and the last one that I remember that was THAT exciting was the Italian GP at Monza in 1969, or 70. It was a brilliant, brilliant drive by Button and anyone who says he was lucky is, I'm sorry to say, an idiot!
