Yeah well forget all that Triathlon distraction then,
and concentrate on being a Racing Driver - ie what you are paid to do
- and try to drive with a bit more grit please and less of the whinging you are starting to sound like the ****ne Wenger of F1

Yeh, ready for the challenge of finnishing in that car of his. I think in that team they swop the better parts each week between each car so that each guy has a chance ...to break down each race.

I know what pc means when he says Jenson should drive with a bit of grit. I think many people were a bit disappointed with the ease with which Vettel passed him in Abu, despite the fact that Jenson had held him off for a few laps. Jenson does not have that "punchy" style of driving F1 that Lewis and Vettel have. He does not throw the car around, and that gives the impression of being slow.

He is a smoother more thinking type of driver. Yet while not slow, that style does not always work when you are going into a corner with a rival with a similar level of car performance.

I thought JB was a bit sleepy in the last race when Vet passed him, JB himself says the move suprised him, but once Vets car was there Button wasnt going to break his car defending a position that was already in his opponents favour. Seen plenty of similar situations, Alonso letting Hamilton around the outside in Hockenheim last year springs to mind. Martin Brundle goes on about being able to trust the opposition not to run into you, Button, Alonso, Raikkonen I think fall into that category.

Yeah, Button isn't punchy and just slow.

Please remind me again of the opening lap in India.

Which driver was it that made up a position off the start , went toe to toe with, according to most of the fanboys on this site, the two best drivers on the grid, and went into the corner behind both of them and went straight around the outside of them both to win the battle.

Hmmm, who was that?
