jenson has totally spanked lewis this year
fair play to the guy
if he does the same next year then he will have stamped his authority as mclarens no1 driver
i think he would more than give vettle a run if he was in the redbull

Lets face it, Buttons WDC was fortuitous curtsey of the what was deemed not in the spirit of the regulations, wont call it cheating, double diffuser and even then he struggled towards the end of the season with a couple of lack lustre races. Looking at his time with McLaren hes still having his bad days in the office like missing his pit crew and generally not being able to consistently qualify further up the grid, having said that hes certainly shown how much Hamilton is over valued and miss sold to the general public by the media.

I was one of the 10% that said give this guy a break and wait and see.
Don't know about waiting 'til next year . . . I think he already is Mclarens No 1 driver in the viewers minds ( He's spanked Lewis all year ).

Jenson is a class act and has muscled his way into the history books with his performances in the last 2 and half years, he's broken Sham's will and Sham's confidence, hell he even scared Vettel off the track and no other drivers has managed that including Sham himself. If Flavio had a bit more belief at the end of 2002 and kept Button we'd have seen an epic title battle between Jenson and Alonso in 2005-2006, but still here we are, Jenson blowing Sham away and where are the trolls that were still saying Sham would still finish ahead as recent as 1 race ago??? Please speak up! Rob, Acute, Pitstop? Hahahahaha seriously it must be gutting for you guys.
But still after saying all that Jenson wouldn't have a chance against Vettel in the same car, Seb is the best driver in the world.

JB is the safest pair of hands on the wheel at McLaren, Lewis has speed, but this year has shown that he needs more, more consistently to beat Button next year. 38 point advantage with two races to go, the unimaginable at the start of last year is now turning into a stark reality for Lewis Hamilton and his fans!

Buttons always been a class driver.

If all the cars on the grid where the same, then most of the drivers would in reality have a good chance of winning any given race depending on circumstances ie high grip, low grip,wet ect!.

IMO the top three drivers on the grid today would be very close between Button, Vettle and Alonso based on their ability to race consistantly fast while keeping the car on the track!. Just my Opinion!.
Ps if Hulkenberg was to get a good car in my opinion he would also be up there... Hes one to watch in the comming seasons!.
