I hope that Button continues on from last season, if McClaren produce a good car and Button gets a good start I believe he can be a very strong contender for the championship. If he has a problem it's wringing that last bit out of himself and the car in qualifying, if he can do that he will have made a huge improvement all round and will be as good as anybody else on the grid. I might even have a few quid on him winning the championship and that does'nt happen too often.

@Taz
Rexy is saying about Button maintaining his no.2 i guess. Vettel hates that position. He likes only 1st place.
But i think Button is 2nd best after Vettel. He is better than Ferdi.

I'm sorry, but it won't get any better than this for Button. His qualifying performances aren't good enough for a top driver. Hamilton had a crap season that's why Button beat him, even so Lewis handed Button his a$$ in terms of pure speed (quali), and won the same amount of races. Hamilton gets an 'okay' season, there's no way Button's gonna beat him ,let alone challenge for the title. I got massive respect for the guy for what he's done last season but what i'm saying is the truth.

Agree Shrieker and Button is my No 1 driver. He's not good at qualifying and not good in the opening laps of races. His wins came when other drivers took the wrong strategy.

I like JB a lot, one of my fave drivers, and I hope he beats LH again this season. Sure he doesn't have the out right speed and grabs the car by the scruff of the neck like LH does, but winning races isn't about just out right speed. As we seen with what Pirelli is doing with the tires for next year, sure you can be fast, but if you burn your tires in 10 laps and have to pit all the time, what good is that? JB shares what FA and MS have...they have the mental capacity to figure out whats going on not only with their race, but with people around them, a trait LH rarely seems to display.
