Yes of course you can Jen's.
If a freak virus takes out all the other teams apart from McLaren.
And then . . . . just as you were getting to the part where where Little Green Men were changing your wheels you . . . . .
Yes you woke up.
Dream on!

Does this guy really mean what he says?With the Red Bulls and the Ferraris looking fearfully threatening,what chances has he.Did he not say he has the best car ever,at the beginning of testing?I don't see this guy in the top tier of F1 racing,except in Britain where he is considered amongst the best.But world view says otherwise.
This is all about sponsorship hype.It is not difficult to see Mclaren is on the throes of death.Martin W. is a crap of a leader,no sorry.....a follower.

Ohh Richard. Why do you have to bring Hamilton into every single topic..

Maybe it is unrealistic that he will win the WDC this year, but what would be the point of him saying or thinking anything different? He's a racing driver, and you need to have a winning attitude, especially if you are in a top team like McLaren. It's still very early in the season. I wouldn't be counting anyone out yet.

The Problem is we are only 2 races into the championship and all the drivers shouldnt be talking about the championship as it is waaaayy too early to talk about it.
Of course their goal is to win it, no doubt about that, but when faced with the question the answer should be its too early to talk about it. Case closed.

We dont hear Vettel, Alonso, or webber talking about it do we. Why should Button do so?

All drivers should put their heads down and fight to the last corner of the last race rather than talk what they can do. Action speaks louder than words and to be honest we fans are fed up of mr x or y keep talking about it.
Enough Button with these talks, if you think you can do it then please lead the way or else dont say a word & please get a grip on life + reality! I think my message is loud and clear!

I have a feeling that even if McLaren get the car sorted out in the next few races it will already be too late. Button would need a flawless campaign from then on and I don't see that happening given the woeful pit stops and strategies by McLaren in recent times.

@Nick63
Nobody will disagree that Ferrari started last season with a slow car but the difference is Alonso and Ferrari put their head down and fought till the end.
Did Alonso talk about having a chance to win it with 2 points to his name after 2 races? No.
He and the other championship contenders always used to say the championship is long and anything could happen.
I dont think Button is convinced himself of winning it which is why he trying to convince others.
Unless he becomes a regular podium finisher from china on, he can forget about the championship with his once in a blue moon wins and usual non podium finishes.
That will take him nowhere and he will kiss this championship good bye. Beating Vettel and Alonso will be mighty difficult.
