Well, it could be like another driver, who was at least partly to blame for another incident, but would prefer to call the other driver an "idiot" and cucumber

Did i miss something when i watched the race . Am i mistaken or was Narain Karthikeyen actually leading Button on track in which case why should he give way just because his car was slower. If he had been doing anything wrong he would of been infront of the stewards.
I have followed F1 for almost 50years and Nigel has been one of my Heros along the way same as Jenson is. But on this occasion Nigel is wrong and Jenson knew he was in the wrong and simply put his hand up. I won't say any more because i still remember the exciting races that Nigel treated us to .

Oh go and suck something soft Nigel,just an attempt to try and rub some of your ready salt into Lewiss healing wounds. Too bad that it was LH day for flying the flags at McLaren, the stats dont lie,LH visited the pits for new tyres 3 times JB visited the pits 5 times,
JB fastest lap on lap 50 1.42.100, LH on Lap 50 1.41.539, so who was good on the tyres... Jenson could not do anything but to own up to his error. Someone please award him a gold Blue Peter badge.

I keep reading were people keep saying it was "50-50" and that Karthikeyan is partly to blame, etc, etc and that's complete bullsh1t. Unless Karthikeyan changed his line or moved over on Button (which he didn't) than Button is 100% at fault. It's has always been on the over taking driver to make a clean pass on a slower car if that car holds it's line. But since it's Button that has now changed? If you are in a slower car and leading the position on track you are suppose to give way? Since when? Since it was Button who was held up? Please.
