LOL, what a psychological move by Jenson ... getting right inside Lulu's head.

Now, does Lulu follow the 'advice' of his 'team leader' & sign up 'as the 2nd driver' ... or does he try snub Jensons comments by going somewhere else to spite him?

This comment by Jenson makes it a lose lose for Lewis - very very clever from Jenson!!

JB even sounds like the team leader now. A perfect and constantly prominant reminder to Hamilton that in any competitive sport, someone has to lose, losing is part of the process whether it is to your opponents or your team mate, Button spent the first six years of his career 'not winning', he may not be as fast as Hamilton (not that many are), but he is the most complete driver in a McLaren right now.

I think Jenson is right on the money here. A Button/Hamilton pairing is great for McLaren. On his day, Hamilton can be the fastest guy out there, but he tends to be inconsistent. Button, though, may not be the fastest driver, but can get every little bit out of the car pretty much every time get gets behind the wheel. A great team pairing that will hopefully push both drivers to reach their best. Hamilton got the best of Button last year, but Jenson has risen to get the best of Lewis this year. It will be interesting to see what happens next year.

I agree with Dale, but still think he should stay with MacLaren. First of all I think MacLaren are the team most likely to be a strong challenge to Red Bull, and secondly Lewis can beat Button when in top form.

This is epic!
JB IS Maccas #1 driver now and it's his turn to say WE welcome lulu to sign up for an extension next year. Talk about poetic justice. I can't wait to see Sir Bangalot's reaction and comments on this one. I predict the longest tread of comments of the year for this site and extra duty for the mods at Crash.net. Excellent win for Jenson of course, and congrats to Seb who will now stick two fingers up.
Today is a great day indeed!

With his/this comment at this particular time Button is politely trying his best to prevent Lulu from engaging brains gear and so giving him (Lulu) a shove downwards in his free fall, so much for the so claimed harmony/love between these two?
