F1 » Button: DRS will spice up Abu Dhabi

Jenson Button: It's usually been quite difficult to overtake here, especially last year, but I think that DRS will change all that. The back straight is one of the longest in F1 so I expect to see a lot of action there...

Bernie talks up the Hamster saying he will get through this rough patch, and I agree. In terms of raw speed he probably has the edge on Jens, BUT Jens has got the results, hence the points, and is driving with more aggression. It just gets better and better.
His stock at McL is rising. He is a credit to the team, and to the sport. Every time he opens his mouth he says exactly the right thing (others take note!). If McL can give him the car, he CAN win another championship. As Damon said, Jens is like a great bottle of Claret, getting better with age. He publicly acknowledges that Ham will be sorted next year and we will see a great battle between them, a sportsman and gentleman to the last. The haters have nothing to say.

There may be *more* overtaking this year, but that's not saying much as there wasn't any last year. Until they alter the corners at Abu Dhabi to allow room for more than one car through at a time there will be very little overtaking at this track.
I hope I'm wrong, but I'm still expecting an incredibly dull processional race.

I like drs and the pirelli tyres this season , they've made a big differece to the enjoyment I get from watching because the races seam far more open . Although they do take a bit away from the hard racers and give it back to the more steady racers . It hasn't worked well at every track though so lets hope for a good one in Abu Dhabi .

Seb on pole, and will win.

Everything else will be excuses and flames.

I cant wait til 2012, so we can stop hearing how it is all car. If McLaren/Ferrari cannot build a car to challenge RBR, then maybe it is time for the old guard to retire from this sport.

Drama Re-introduction System. F1, so predictable they had to contrive a way to pass. Then the poor bloke who can't open his own wing, gets blasted by, has to hope his pit strategy or a back marker doesn't prevent him from being a second behind the next time they enter the zone. What a farce, our sport has become. Still, accolades to Jenson and Alonzo for trying to keep us awake. Props to Lewis as well, for giving us all something to argue about.

Many have written that JB only won in Canada and got past the Ham and Schu so easily in Italy etc because of DRS.
So how come Webber couldn't get past Jens in India, and the Hamster couldn't get past the Schu for many laps in Italy, and he can never get past Massa cleanly. In that particular case, could be because Massa keeps turning into the Ham, as he did in Monaco and India, hence the accidents.
Or could it just be that Jens is great at passing people, great at judging when to go for the gap, great at racing. Just asking to see what the haters come up with.
