Like Alonso and Raikkonen, Button has never been a good qualifier, and like them he has habit of doing better in the actual race than in qualifying.

In spite of qualifying much worse than Hamilton last year, he finished just two points behind him. And he was hit just as hard as Hamilton with technical problems, before somebody offers that excuse.

His head to head record with Hamilton over three years indicates that he's a very good driver. Maybe not the best, but much better than he's being given credit for.

"He may have had the best car at the start of 2009 but he still had to drive it to beat everyone else"

yup and Rubens outscored him on the 2nd part of the championship. :P

@ oldtimer I don't feel sorry for them at all. I want them all gone, Whitmarsh, Michael, Button, and Perez. Bad performances is the only way we're going to initiate change at Mclaren. Let the firings begin.
