F1 » Button: Tyre strategy was very tricky to call


Jenson Button: I kept asking the team: 'What's going to happen with the weather: it's supposed to be light showers?' Well OK, we'll see how we go but it was so, so difficult...

Not that you ever need any help in making the right tire strategy call JB, but in future, if you're ever in doubt about which tire you should be on just watch Lewis.

Whatever he does, just do the opposite!

LH is guaranteed to make the wrong call time after time after time.

Well, at least it gives his fanboys something else to blame the team for...

Polo, Your "no grip" nickname for Button seems rather stupid, he didn't seem to have a problem finding grip yesterday while on slicks on a damp track, his team mate on the other hand was straight in for inters as soon as conditions were tricky.

I posted a long time ago that, were I a team manager, my ideal team to win the WCC would be Button and Alonso. Button is next to unbeatable in changing conditions and Alonso can wring a car's neck and put it places that it has no right to be.

What a cracking race! Great job JB. Great job by Massa, too. I think I'm back on the Massa bandwagon, after jumping off for dear life towards the end of last season.

Totally agree with 1Jez... Button and Alonso are the two most in control of their emotions too. And I'm very pleased to see Massa's sun coming out of the clouds too. At the end of the season he was beginning to beat Alonso even though Alonso has priority in the team, proving that Massa really is top-flight.
