Don't understand the hate towards Button from the usual suspects.
Had he answered the question in the negative the haters would have jumped all over him questioning why he is in F1 if he doesn't think he can win the champlonship etc.
I don't understand the hate some posters feel - perhaps your own inadequacies coming to the surface?.

@ Buzz
Barrichello was not as good as Schumi and that was the reality, any team mate can be beaten every now and then but overall Schumacher was on a different level to Rubens, Button actually got beaten by Rubens in 2008 and was also behind Rubens in the 2nd half of the 2009 season when his form dropped like it does.
The fact is Jenson is a decent driver and maybe should have been on the podium at Malaysia but the title is a long shot now, beating Mercedes should be his main target for this season, Vettel, Alonso and even Kimi are out of reach already.

Buzz45, I think you should read the Daily Mirror article again. He was not answering a specific question but rather talking in general that he should not be written off. Even if he was asked that specific question he should have, suffice to say, simply said it's far too early to rule anyone out. But then again it seems a rather stupid question to ask a professional F1 driver only two races into the season.

@Tealeaf
Do you honestly think that Rubens had the same equipment and opportunities given to him by Ferrari that Schumi had?
As for Rubens beating Button, sorry, but I thought it was Button who was WDC, I must have got that wrong.

Usual hate going on towards Button. God, he does wind some people up, eh? I'm glad he winds the haters up. Not that he would give a fig, given that he's been the one living the dream of driving in F1 since the age of 20! Sickening isn't it, eh? Poor lambs! It's a shame McLaren messed up that last race. Would have been nice to see Button sailing past Lewis in a jalopy!

I saw some muppet, a regular multi-posting member of the anti-Button brigade, say on the BBC web-site that Perez was the number 1 driver at McLaren. You see what you want to see, hear what you want to hear, etc
