@107SS2009 - This is Button's 13th season in Formula 1. If he hasn't learnt how to master the secrets of Spa or Monza by now then I doubt he ever will, even with advice from MSC (which I'm sure he'd not divulge to a rival).

I expect some very good things from Me Boy Buttons..
Maybe neutralise Alonzo a bit and hand victory over Lewis or Kimi.
2009 why would a driver with a resume as fantastic as Button
need to consult Schumacher about driving or anything else
Don't try and sell me boy short baby.

Last year at this time everybody was calling for Lewis Hamilton to be dropped from the team. And that he should be driving for one of the 3 new teams or out of F1 entirely.

You don't hear none of that when Button is the one lagging well behind even worst then Hamilton was last year. There's not even a strong reaction to the fact that Mclaren used Lewis Hamilton's car's setup to help out Button. And it helped Button.

Had McLaren decided to do such thing last year to help Lewis, there might have been a real fan riot at McLaren's headquarters.

There is a lot of self imposed pressure on Button. He claimed the team was molded around him to start the year. And that the team took a large amount of advise as to how the car was to be set up. So much that by year end he was thinking that team orders were now a good idea. Even after proclaiming he would never drive on a team with those types of orders. If he provides a support role in the very near future you may get to see a total melt down on pit lane.

The summer break is not likely to have helped Button's inability to qualify at the front. Until that happens and we all know it won't he will continue to struggle in the middle order. Button had talks with Ferrari before and might it just be that the writing is on the wall at McClaren and Ferrari have approached him about next season. He has said he would never be a number two but money talks especially at this stage of his career when other doors have closed and time is running out

@ oldtimer The truth of the matter is Button has never been considered one of the top drivers in F1. Even when he won his 09 WDC people attributed his success to the car he was driving. I know this might be considered blasphemy to the Button "fanboys" but, he just doesn't have the speed or the talent to be considered one of the top drivers on the grid. He is a "try hard guy" the Tim Tebow of F1.
