As he continues to outperform team-mate Lewis Hamilton in the internecine duel at McLaren-Mercedes, Jenson Button has received high praise indeed from the most successful driver in F1 history...

To have a seven times WDC call you a 'phenomenal talent' isn't a bad endorsement.

Twitmarsh better get the tippex out on that cheque he's written :)

Underrated driver. He could have had a lot more wins over the years in the right car.
As MS said he may be 2% off his peak but more than makes up for it with experience.
Very, very intelligent driver who is mechanically sympathetic with a car.
He will win a lot more races if he stays in a competitive car.
He is proving it is not always the fastest that wins.

MS will NOT be throwing compliments Jenson's way any more. Jenson's comment on MS memory or lack of isn't going to sit well with him. Jenson basically said MS was none to bright as well. His comments refer to his blocking the road while Jenson got a birds eye view. Although Jenson was spot on it was a serious dig at the old man.

Oh Please..... Button is a mordern day Damon Hill or Kimi nothing special.... Situation has to suit Button before he performs, he has never taking grip of a race and do the unthinkable to win a race... when you look at all the winners in the last 10 years... both Button and Kimi are 2 winners you would think about all the ifs and buts....

In 2009 or 2010 I would have agreed with Roberto as saying Button was good but not great, but I think his performances this year have moved him beyond that. He has always been good in the wet but even so his performances in Canada and Hungary were incredible. He is taking the fight to Hamilton in the same car and frequently doing better, something no-one thought we'd be saying when he first joined Mclaren. He is also showing form in the dry and changing his reputation of a wet weather specialist. He makes very very few mistakes in races. If only he could qualify consistently better then he'd be right up there. Good on you Jenson for having the balls to go to Mclaren and giving us Brits so much to cheer for!

He is the best overtaker in the business, doesn't go for the non-existent gap and nails the existent one. Plus, in a McLaren, he doesn't fade but keeps the next guy in his sights till the end. In the fastest car he would be as dominating as a Prost or Mansell.
