If they've tweaked the car to be a bit more neutral in it's balance then he might feature at the top more this year. He's not the best out there but he's unbeatable when everything is to his liking (tyres).

It is remarkable just how much public opinion can change from year to year. at the end of 2011 there wasn't a bad word said about him. In 2012 he has a run of bad races due to incorrect car setup and he is labelled useless.

bmfbw Thats Buttons problem he only has 2 or 3 good races a year every year since he started.

And it certainly helped him at Spa when Groesjan took out most of his competitors at the first corner!

Typical Jenson bashing. YAWN

In Spa head lead from the word go so doesn't matter who finished.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing him up there again and Perez. It's going to be another great season...

I'm sick of people saying when his car is perfect he's unbeatable, when it's perfect he's about a tenth off Hamilton unless Hamilton has problems.

Will the partnership end up being Sergio freely giving set up information to Jenson, as we saw last year, when Hamilton was the giver. Then, Jenson given preferential pitstops? The advantage is with Jenson this season, but I wonder how long Sergio will be able to stomach the setup at McLaren.

@elijah do you even listen to what the drivers, engineers & team principals especially in McLaren all say or do you just let it go over your head because you like to bash Jenson?

McLaren have said for years which has been backed up by both drivers is that throughout the weekend both drivers share setup information which the other driver may or may not wish to use.

I'm sure Jenson will help Perez, all the team principals that have worked with him say he's the most co-operative team player there is in Formula 1 right now.
