Just imagine all three of you. Button, Hamilton, and Alonso. Together, the three of you can see if you will be able to match Sebastian Vettels achievements by the time his career is over. And lets not forget that Michael is still winning 7 championships to your combined 4.

@ Ptolomy

What does that have to do with ANYTHING?!

I think it's nice Button sets himself high benchmarks. He doesn't wish for a week team mate. He likes having a team mate that will push him.

That would be an intresting pairing, but it would also be intresting to get the a view from the only f1 driver to have finished above both men while they were reining champions to who would be the better driver.

I think he would go for Button as he is very confident at the moment on the pirelli's but he would be well aware that Alonso is very tenacious.

This would be a good fight.

Fernandos mind games would turn Buttons brain to jelly,don't get me wrong i like Jenson and he is quick but i've never been quite sure how much backbone he's got.

Rob,
I am not so sure.
Jenson accomplished what Fernando could not. Making himself an integral component, if not number 1, at McLaren, with Lewis as teammate.
I think it would come down to which team they both drove for, and if JB moved to Ferrari, I agree. If Fernando moved back to McLaren, I do not.
Likely never going to happen but strange things can develop from time to time.
But when I read this clip, I asked myself, why is Jenson making this statement at this time? He seldom says anything without purpose. Some might construe the meaning to say that he would prefer Fernando over Lewis, that he likes Fernando, but that he is not the fastest guy in F1. Quite an accomplishment in such a short clip.

Reading between the lines here and Id take a bet that Jenson is hinting he wants Hamiltoon out of McJalopies!! He is not only hinting here that Fernando is smarter than Hambone, he is also saying he would prefer a different teammate by suggesting "...if Lewis wasnt in Formula 1"... to Martin Whipped**** that means he would prefer anyone rather than Hammy because Hammys 1 lap pace is better than JBs, and JB knows it!! The only problem JB has at McLiars is beating Looboy for 1 lap pace! All is not as well as they are pretending over at McMowers. #:)

I love the fact that JB has to include "if Lewis wasn't in F1 for example" before going on to say he'd love to team up with Alonso, just to prevent Lulu having a hissy fit at the thought of being unwanted. LOL
