Forgot to see the part in there where he thanks Lewis for battling with Vettel when he was less than a second behind Alonso, which allowed Button to even pass Vettel in the first place. Hoping that Hamilton will get a penalty for Hungary because it is definitely justified.

Not my favourite but,I cant but admire today how JB fougt all his way to the lead, 2.3sec wink record pitted, and finally never lost his cool after being Ilegally pickpocketed his #2 spot by SV in that corner. all allong the podium ceremony behaving as a true sportsman.
Glad to see FIA this time, for a change, made Justice, but too late, Id rather see Kimi in that #3 spot.

Good drive Jenson but Mclaren really needed a Lewis Hamilton in a Canada mode to bring home Mclaren for a win today, good drive though.

Vettel made an illegal pass and just should have waited or backed out, simple.

Faster cars may unlap themselves.Well, it looks to me there is some unclear border (if any defined) between the obligation to slow down under the blue flag and the opposite permission to try to unlap oneselves. And when it comes to interfere with the front runners by an all but sportly manner, the things tends to come apart from the governance of fairness, if left unpunished.

cassyo the blue flags may only apply if the backmarker was slower thus impeding the leaders. Lewis came out of the pits with fresh tires and was catching up so he was faster than Vettel. We didn't see any blue flags being waved by the marshals.

Interesting that no one is commenting on JB's block on Vettel on the straight. And I'm not talking about JB's defensive move to the inside, but when he moves back toward the racing line to pinch SV to the outside. If you take a defensive line, that's your line, none of this weaving crap. That's the only thing that kept Button next to Vettel in the turn, and that's what forced Vettel off the track.
