We? Where were you in the last 6 races??? And you still say we??? You got lucky Hamilton, Grosjean, Massa, Rosberg and a couple of other drivers either started way back due to force majeure or had issue in first lap otherwise you would had gone missing for yet another race. I find it funny how Button think he's such a great team leader and a great number 1 driver when all he did was win the 2009 title with the car 1 second faster than all other teams and keeps on picking up wins here and there only when gambling is involved and he gets lucky.

@Dylan you have no place here! You're not a fan of this sport, the car was not 1 sec faster the drivers made the difference, yes it was quicker at the start of 2009 but you still have to be a great driver to extract the maximum from the car which he did and he kept his head when the other caught up, there is luck in all sport but you have to be talented to make it.

You could say that Alonso was lucky to some extent to get pole on Saturday as it rained because in the dry McLaren & Red Bull are quicker.

Also Button out qualified the lot that you mentioned in your post with or without penalties, get your facts right before posting!

Great to have you back at the front Jenson, keep it up... you win together, you lose together.

@George, how is he the worst World Champion of all time? Are you maybe forgetting people like Villneuve of Hamilton he hasn't been as great since 2008. Look at Barrichello's records before he joined F1 and his very early years in F1, he done brilliantly with not great equipment.

"he's far tooinconsistent to mount a title challenge" look at his consistency in 2004, 10 podiums, if it weren't for the might of Ferrari that year he would have one races & of course 2009, he finished every race in the points with 6 wins and last year, 12 podiums & 8 of them from the last 8 races. If Vettel & the Red Bull weren't so dominant then he would have also challenged him for the title, look up your history before posting!

If anyone thinks that of Button, then they must include Vettel in the the same critique. Vettel was in the best car in 2010 and by far the best car in 2012, at a level way above that of Brawn in 2009. Button was in the best car in 2009 by ever decreasing margins up to race 6, then Brawn ran out of money to develop the car, so he ended the year in the fourth best car. Barricello out qualified and out raced Schumacher at some point every year he raced for Ferrari, so how is he an also ran? If you know about the 2009 season you would know about Barricello's rant at being beaten by Button when it was plain to see that he was just plain slower. Ross Brawn praised Button and compared him to Schumacher in some ways. Guess you find all sorts commenting here, mostly those who haven't a clue about F1....

'keeps picking up wins here and there'

Of course they hand out wins in F1. Dead easy to pick up a win now and then. I reckon we could all do that. Really?

Jensen is a class act. Great for the team and the fans, and very professional. Over a lap or two, not as fast as Lewis, but doesnt seem to get into trouble, a little more thoughtful and patient.
A good ballance in the team in fact, but most teams have/need a number one and two, so not sure if this is the right set up. Maybe Lewis should leave and have Jense as number one.
