F1 » Hill: Button always a dark horse

Damon Hill: At the end of last year I thought Jenson was super strong and you started to put money on him each time. [Whereas with] Lewis you always feel could go either way...

@bannyboy. in case you didnt know alonso split from his wife and went through a divorce last year it wasnt front page news and he didnt spend all season crashing into people. lewis is an excellent driver who i have been watching a long time before he came to f1 but it seems he cant separate work and play. in my opinion he needs his father to guide him not a celebrity agency

Its all too close to call. The thing about JB is that despite his age he does seem to still be improving so who knows what he will deliver this year. Hamilton will have to improve to beat JB. Yes Benny, he made mistakes, but they were his mistakes and if he makes anything like as manay again an improving Button will beat him over the course of a season.

The new regs make the cars an unknown quantity so any of the usual protagonists are in with a shout. That's the beauty of a new season of motorsport!

Really I think Mr. Hill got it wrong again..
Reading the post here on Crash net that mantel "Dark-horse"
should go to Hamilton. The consistent doom and gloom from
the naysayer here forecast just that. One has to wonder just how
much Doom and Gloom would be on the table if Lewis was
not British? Think about it! The controlling factor is what car
Big Mac brings to the battle. Methinks Ferrari, RBR, and
Mercedes will be surprised.
Ride like wind baby..

Oldog, Jose

@ bannyboy great comments. Alonso and Hamilton are the only guys on the grid that can challenge Vettel. With the right car of course. Button is a good driver, but he doesn't have the talent or raw speed and he needs help from too many outside forces. Take for instance Canada last year (a wet track). The stars and skies have to be in perfect alignment for him to do anything. Let alone win a race.

People tend to forget what Button was doing the first ten years of his career. I didn't. He was partying like a rock star. This new career of his didn't take shape until Ross Brawn came along and saved his bacon. This guy was almost out of F1. So, whenever u talk about Button don't forget to mention the first ten years of his career.

@redneck, can you provide some proof for your statement that every team principle would take button over hamilton? or are you just taking out the top of your head? people stating opinion as fact... smfh! :?

nothing against button, i hope he does well and if hamilton doesn't get his act together button will beat him in the championship again. but if both are on their game and it comes down to which one is faster and which one will do that bit extra to win and bring home the team championship i know who i believe has the edge.

Jackbee - there's a reason he's at 11-1, but if you really want to waste 25 quid, I can think of a few charities more deserving than the bookies.
