at Bob the cowboy builder

oh just seen JENSON HIGHLIGHT 2009 year
Brawn had a 2-3 second advantage for the 1st part of the year FACT as soon as the other teams caught onto the blown diffuser Jenson didn't win a race!!! This proves Jenson needs a 2second advantage car abit like Vettel hence why no-one respects Vettel or Jenson FACT!!!

@darth vader, pole position, etc, etc - what age are you? 12? 'Bob the cowboy builder', goodness me!

When Button signed a pre-contract agreement with Williams in 2005 to drive for them in 2006, Honda, who were in the process of taking over the BAR team for 2006, thought so highly of Button they paid Williams £30 million to buy out his contract. Given that Frank Williams, Honda, Ross Brawn (who said in 2011 he still wished he had Jenson in his team) and McLaren all rate him so highly of him, why do you think your inexpert and childish opinion has any value at all? Why not just zip it and try and engage in discussions based on what's taking place on the track and not just your pathological enmity against Jenson Button, which gets more desperate by the day!

Ghog, as I said earlier think before you write. You don't even know when something is said in the rhetorical sense. I suggest you stick to someone of your equal as you haven't a clue in your reply nor as it appears do you have an understanding of irony. Would you like to continue?

@jim crint I'm old enough to know a rubbish racing driver and young enough not to believe the Jeson Bieber hype of 2005/06
Was that the same year Briatore called Jenson I quote " ****"? The same Briatore who hired Nelson Piquet Jnr and the same Briatore that helped Alonso!!!
I suggest you try going back to 1940 something to find something good about Jenson Button like for example he wasn't around..... LOL 30million how Frank Williams must be laughing at that great escape, be truthful the Brawn car was the most highly developed F1 car of its time until Honda pulled the plug.. It was a fluke Mercedes engine ended up in that car and the rest is history it had little to do with Button abit like Damon Hill in his traction control car so please don't come talking to me about things you clearly dont want to bring into the arguement.. (YOU HAVE BEEN CYBER TEABAGGED)

@Darth Vader - you mean a bit like Jim Clark in a Lotus, 63/65, or Fittipaldi in a Lotus, 72, or Niki Lauda in a Ferrari, 75/77, or Nelson Picquet in a Williams, 87, or Senna in a McLaren, 88, Prost in a McLaren, 89, Mansell in a Williams, 92, or Schumacher in a Ferrari 2000/2004, or Vettel in a Red Bull, 2011......can you not see a pattern here? All these WDCs were driving the best car, often by miles, of it's day.

So what does that make all these drivers? Lucky chancers? The 1988 McLaren won 15 out of 16 races that year, does that invalidate Senna's title because it was a walk in the park?

I'll bring anything to the argument you like, but please
just stop with the nonsense. Cyber teabagged? WTF??

Your comparing Jenson Button with Senna!!!! LOL and you call me crazy! The difference with all those drivers you mentioned all had skill beyond there era.. Whilst Button relied on the double diffuser and had no skill when everyone caught up! For example Senna in the Mclaren v the Williams or Lewis v Vettell when you know Red Bull has the better car and Lewis overtakes in a lesser McLaren you know its skill not car superiority! Thats the difference which majority of people see... Hence Vettel, Button & Schui all 3 of them are no skillers!!!
PG tips or tetley this time?
