He has a point! During the race you hear all the drivers complaining that the tyres are going off, their sliding around etc... the people that are have a dig at Jenson complaining are people that are just wanting an excuse to degrad him, obviously all the drivers aren't happy when things aren't going their way and telling their team what is wrong. It's better than another McLaren driver blaming his team for EVERYTHING!

Good luck in the next race Jenson and I hope you can bounce back to your brilliant best!

Car has to be absolutely perfect or he will not perform. LH on the other hand will drag the car round the circuit kicking and screaming if it only has 3 wheels and still be on the pace!!

Oversteer, understeer,no grip,cant get heat in my tyres,the balance is not right,got a bad start,i'm not 2 sec slower than my teammate, problem with rear suspension, not enough down force, the wheels keep going around when i press the gas. LOL the Jenson excuse manual could give the Webber Manual of 2011 a good run for its money.

ronnie. do not keep quoting lulu! its getting a bit thin now!

button might say something to his team over the radio, but he does not make bizzare utterances and team attacks in public unlike another driver in the same team. at he also admits it when he feels that it is his own fault. others could learn from him.

I think he's right. A driver who is not giving his team feedback by radio on where to improve the car either does not have a clue, or is excessively shy!

If he's had a crap race, and then afterwards is asked by an interviewer "so what went wrong jenson" or "how was your race", what is the poor chap meant to say with out it sounding like he's whining.

richard, he does not attack the team he cracks the whip when the team is not performing its only people like you who want to see Lewis telling Mclaren to get their finger out as an attack. Lewis is not only a record breaking top f1 driver but is now keeping Mclaren in line by exposing and jumping on silly/elementary mistakes his team makes and its starting to get results on his side of the team. And he also took the blame for the bad pitstops regards the anti stall.

Anyway typical you bringing up Lewis on a Button thread you need to get over Lewis's popularity in f1 i now he is not the type of driver who fits your middle England profile but that's just how it is in sports talent will always shine through over peoples stereotypes

ronnie. what is a "middle england profile"? and anyway, you do not know wher i reside!
funny, you are always criticising button, and normally bring your idol into play in every thread. and isnt it acceptable to compare him to his teammate?
ok, for some reason you dislike button, and any other driver but your idol, but try , for once, being objective and post about f1!
