If Hamilton is so fast, why has he got only 1 pole position in 2010 and 2011 each and just one more than Vettel in 2012 when Hamilton had the fastest car

When he got pole after pole people said its easy irk out one pole that race pole counts

Can't say I think much of Brundle's prophesies. I remember when he panned Sauber's decision to put Raikkonen in the car in his debut season. Brundle himself chose to join Mclaren at one of its worst periods... and he was even negatively vocal about the Sky deal just over a year ago (before he was asked to join them of course).

Brundle is a top Pundit and his views and comments can be regarded as credible when it comes to F1. He once said when Lewis is at his best he is the best, and now he is saying he is the fastest. TBH sensible F1 fans know this and most would agree he should be the 2012 WDC.

As for Button v Perez we just have to wait and see..

PDR was past over by the top teams because he is not a top young gun , respect to Mcca for seeing things as they really are.

On Sky F1's review of the year, Brundle again described Hamilton as the fastest man in F1, however added 'he isn't the most complete and he isn't the best', Pastor Maldonado and Romain Grosjean are very fast drivers as well

Why do people say: 'well if lewis is soo good why hasn't he got a title in soo many years and hasn't won this many races and so on'

Well if you haven't noticed in the past 80 or so years F1 hasn't been a Spec series, not every car is the same, its quite annoying that soo many people here treat every driver like they have the same car, Mclaren this year for insistence where fast in the start and end of the year but the biggest problem was reliability, but most people don't watch the races they just look at the final point score and make conclusions.

Sharp observation about Hakkinen-DC. Kinda puts things in perspective.

There might be a very small window of oppertunity for Button to gain a good amount of points on Perez in the first few races, putting some doubt in the McLaren head honchos about Perez' qualities which could tilt the team towards favouring Button for the rest of the year, particularly if they have a car quick enough to have a real shot at the driver's championship. But I reckon this window is really quite small and if he doesn't pull it off or the car isn't quick enough anyway, McLaren won't get behind him and the fastest man will prevail.

@ JJJ I don't care what Whitmarsh says about driver equality. He will always favor his "Boy" Button. It happened with Hamilton and it's going to happen with Perez. U can book it!
