I'm a Button fan contrary to what some of my comments might suggest but he would be better employed sorting out his problems with qualifying rather than talking about it. I can't remember all his recent positions but at a guess he is usually fifth or lower with the occasional third or fourth. That is not going to win him many races these days with the almost total reliability of the cars in front. He has to start getting on the front row. He can be quick enough in the race as we have seen but too often he is spending half the race fighting back from poor starts and grid positions. Come on Jenson stop me moaning!

Jenson needs the rain to beat Hamilton. He's just not that fast.
He has had some mechanical problems but he's never been anywhere near the front anyway.

I think he's over-rated but is kind on tyres.

With both Mclarens in the fray, the racings always better. When Button and and his tyre strategy are spot on, he's usualy good for a podium. Racing, but what have you done for me lately? Today's hero is tomorrows goat.

@ Stuart

Or he needs Hamilton to spit his dummy out which happens quite alot.. or he needs Hamilton take someone out and recieve a penalty.

Button may not be as fast in one lap but over a race distance I think hes better and he seems a far nicer lad

nath so if button is faster over a race distance, why does hamilton beat button on pretty much every occassion when they both finish? Hamilton is so much faster over one lap and also over a race distance. Button tries to be clever by tootling around looking after the tyres and not overtaking anyone because he doesnt know how to, Hamilton still beats him even when he makes more pit stops.
Being a 'nice lad' doesnt make you a racer like lewis

Has ha bad luck since being in a position to benefit from some good luck in Canada, high downforce at Hungery may suit him, he needs to make his own luck though, in qualifying especially.

JB is a smart driver, keeps his cool but he's not so good at dragging a car around that's a bit off the pace. The stats prove that LH is better than JB in the race and in quali. Also its a long time since JB outraced LH without some sort of incident. He's been unlucky. 2 DNF and none of them his fault

Ooh all this hoola "he's so kind to his tyres" doesn't make him fast, as we saw in China,he qualified in front of Lewis, but in the last stint he couldn't make the prime tyres work like Lewis could. Basically all the F1 pilots are used to the Pirellis, and now its down to racing to the likes of Lewis and Nando, like we saw at the Nurburgring. JB is a nice guy,but at racing he's crap.
