"...yes Button's car wasnt 1 sec faster it was almost 2 sec faster..."

Some people really are as dumb as a bucket of hammers!

At no point in 2009 was the Brawn even 1 sec quicker than the rest of the field, let alone 2 seconds.

The biggest margin that the Brawn out qualified then next best car was by 0.628 sec at the very first race in Australia. And for your info, the fastest
lap time for a Brawn in that same race was 0.314 sec SLOWER than the fastest lap time set by Rosberg.

And Turkey, the Brawn of Button qualified 0.105 sec SLOWER than Vettel, who was on pole. And yes, Button's Brawn was the fastest during the race, posting the
fastest lap. A HUGE 0.043 sec quicker than the next best car. Not really 2 seconds is it? In fact, the top 10 fastest laps of the race were covered by 0.635sec.

I suggest you get your facts right before vomiting garbage on here in the future.

I could not have put it better myself.
Very well done.
It won't shut the fanboys up though because they are incapable of coherent thought.
For them the facts don't come into it.
Great post anyway.
You know what. It isn't about being an Alonso, Vettel, Hamilton or Button fan, or supporting McL or the Red team or the Bulls, is it!
It's about loving F1, win or not.
Shame these haters have to constantly try and spoil it for the genuine fans like us.
As I said before. Best to ignore them.

What a load of Rubbish, comparing qualifying speed to race speed is wayyyy different. dont come and mug us with your massaged figure and am not a fan boy am not a Lewis Hamilton fan am German! Actually around Europe the 2009 Champion is been seen as a joke! Vettel had a fast car and from Race 1 to Race 19 he blew the track away, Button the first half of the season he had his advantage the moment that Advantage was closed after Turkey it was lets play the percentage game! Knowing that in the second half of that season Barrichello won 2 races in same car.

Just ignore it and it will go away.
The facts do not interest them and when you prove it with the actual statistics you can see what sort of nonsense they write.
Spectrum the results for 2009 are there in black and white so there is nothing you can day or do that will change them.
Get over it!

You know what else is seen as a joke? *****s who don't make any sense when they post comments.

They're not massaged figures, they're actual figures, check the F1 website. And are you blind, or just a bit dim? I have both qualy and race lap times stated.

You openly admit, like the rest of the world knows, that Button had the fastest car for perhaps only the first 6-7 races - yet still went on to win the championship.

You then go on to tell us that Vettel had the fastest car ALL YEAR.

And how does that make Buttons WDC a joke and Vettel's something special?

You know what I think is a bit special? That's right...you.

I'm afraid that Jenson is not a real World Champion in my eyes. I think in 2009 he go fortunate with the rule changes, and he grabbed the bull by the horns and won the championship, and good on him for that.

But for me real champions go out and give their all whether the car is good or not. For the past 6 races or so Button was posted AWOL most weekends, while Hamilton in the same car was driving the balls off it.

More idiotic comments.

Nothing you can do, say or write is going to change it.
So bad luck and get over it!
