I personally would have Button ahead of Hamilton for favourite for the championship, but if we keep getting different winners and Hamilton can keep getting podiums, then he could well do it. Mind you, if Mercedes can show their form from China on a more regular basis, then we can't count out Nico or a late charge by Michael. Red Bull seem to have a lot of work ahead of them.

14 to 1 on Mark webber to win in Bahrain looks like the best value for money bet to me. Also hopefully the Merc's can continue to be there. This is an unknown though as it will be hotter and drier and it seems that the Merc likes cooler weather.

Hamilton edges Button for me. His approach this year has been welcoming. He's calmer, more relaxed and by all accounts had rotten luck in 2 of the 3 races.

His debut win for 2012 will happen sooner than later. Dont get me wrong, Button is as consistent as they come, will be runner up, ahead of Webber in 3rd.

But that's just my take.

if mercedes continue there current form I seriously don't think JB will have any-chance simply because of his qualifying am sure lewis can mix it up with the mercedes if they are even faster in quali but if JB cant qualify well he will be struggling to pass especially Michael

Buttton's overtaking yesterday was much more clinical than Hammi's, but we still have to remember that Hamilton may of won yesterday if it was not for the grid penalty. For me Button has the race pace over Hammi at the moment.

i think that ppl saying button has been stronger in the races are wrong.in aus yes,but not in malaysia,and not in china,lewis race pace was very good in china,but traffic hurt him,especially his reluctance to overtake perez,because perez kept locking up which spooked lewis abit,and in malaysia that long pitstop allowed button to get ahead of lewis.now when it comes to button,he cant rely on grid penalties to start races ahead of lewis after being outqualified for a 3rd time in a row.i think if lewis had of started 2nd and button 6th the race result would have been different for sure.and when you consider the fact quali should be tighter because of mercs quali pace,if lewis outqualifies button,button may also have the 2 mercs start ahead of him too.

i got to say what good racing hamilton was doing his the most exciting driver to watch out there if he carrys on getting big points every race like this and not worry about taking big risks to get a race win for a few extra points then he can get this championship

Button has put in the strongest performance, Hamilton has been the more consistent, I tend to agree though, should they race in Bahrain and a Mercedes wins, it will be time to re-evaluate
