Button's deluding himself if he really thinks this will make no difference. People work in different ways and until we begin to see what Tim Goss can do we can't really know. The facts are that under Paddy Lowe McClaren have had little real success over the past few years due to poor strategy, pit stops, unrealiabilty and average cars and are in danger of slipping away from the top echelon. Martin Whitmarsh will tell you differently but the facts speak for themselves, they lost Hamilton and now they have lost Paddy Lowe. Perhaps it is time they had a rethink about the way they work because it has not produced the results that McClaren would want. It is clear that Mercedes intend to get to the top but it is not clear that McClaren can stay there.

Really? Does anyone actually proof read articles before posting? Poor standards and it's a common theme it seems.

Funny that when Lewis was leaving button said he would be sad if paddy left and now he said its no problem. Usually when someone says no problem there is a problem. I wonder if heis now not even sad.

LOL, Poor, poor Button he didn't have much of a career before Brawn GP, now he's right back to it. Seems like McLaren will be putting all their hopes in Perez, Button doesn't seem to be as consistent as Perez, and Button is all talk if he thinks Lowe's departure isn't going to effect the team through the season then I'm afraid he's living in a pipe dream.

i think we are about to see a steady decline of Mclaren performance going forward, Button is a comfort boy he has no clue how to setup a car, early last year he spent over half of the races copying Lewis's car setup and admitted to that - yet when Lewis leaves the team he says it will not be a problem...?

Perez is already complaining about the inability to setup the new car, Button as already admitted the inability to manage the tires despite his smooth driving style.

Paddy leaving will be final blow from a tech point of view, it is customary to have strong focus into aero adjustment at the beginning of the season...who will do that? whilst Paddy is gardening...

I have always been a strong Mclaren fan, but the team's arrogance and inclination to favour an average driver like Button has cost them one of the greatest driver of our times...and frankly if i was Paddy, why should i waste my time designing machinery that none can maximise?

clearly Paddy is aware of the fact that Lewis i
