I see no reason for Button, Hamilton attending the test.
Pit stop practice, more Pit stop practice. Cross threaded
wheel nut practice.
Little mistakes always end with really bad results.

Button can choose to sit out ... Or maybe Button is worried Lewis will pick up some of that missing pace hes had since the beginning of the year .... hmmm.

If there is no benefit to testing at Mugello why are all the teams testing there apart from HRT ?

And why are Red Bull, Ferrari, Mercedes, Sauber, Marussia and Toro Rosso using their regular race drivers for the tests ?

What we have here is Button, still trying out his mind games on Hamilton, and Mclaren are happy to comply.

What he's saying is there's no benefit for HIM to be there. They're not racing at the circuit, he doesn't feel he needs more time in the car, plus their testing drivers aren't exactly young prospects but rather two experienced test and development drivers who by now will probably do just as good a job as he or Lewis would in testing what new parts they have. Nothing strange about that.

sodesu. right. it is lulu who is puzzled by his lack of pace. button is happy. so it makes sense for lulu to compare himself with one or other of the test driers. now, if they beat him, something will hit the fan!

Richard what are you on about? Why would Hamilton feel the need to compare himself to a test driver? They will most probably be working on different things on each car anyway...! As he has said, not a lot of point in Button being in the car on a strange circuit testing the car with minimal updates when the test drivers do know the circuit. It's called common sense.
