MW management has been rubbish this season. LH & JB never had a chance with hopeless pitstops and stuff breaking on the car. MW should look how Ferrari have kept FA in the fight to the last race - in a slower car!

I absolutely love all of these predictions about how bad McLaren will do next year and about how bad their drivers are.

I remember the last bold claims made about one of their drivers for next year.

Something about how he was going to get SMASHED by Hamilton.

Have they only been team mates for 1 season?

Hmmm...I thought they have been team mates for 3 seasons.

Points so far over 3 seasons -

LH - 657
JB - 547

10 points over 3 years - hardly what I call getting SMASHED.

Especially when you fanboys continually tell us that Hamilton is the best driver in the history of the world and Button is just a crap midfield driver!

bob - not a fan of either driver completely neutral in fact, points do not tell the whole story. Over the 3 years Hamilton has had more wins, more poles, and completely destroyed Button in qualifying.
JB compares to LH like Webber does to Vettel and Massa to Alonso. They are all number 2 drivers who have 2-3 good races per season and the rest are average. Hamilton, Alonso and Vettell are ALWAYS at the sharp end.
