The only reason why Jenson won his WDC was because Honda basically went crazy in developing it they literally threw the death star at that car and a budget which would have solved every single 3rd world country's debt problem. Which resulted in Button having a 2 second advantage over his peers for half a season, however when everyone caught up Button couldn't win a race!

The typical Mclaren way. Making a lot of noise about how great they are going to be before proving on track that they are going to be competitive over an entire season. How about they first make the necessary improvements , cut out the ridiculous amount of mistakes that have become a habit at Mclaren, and actually get the on track results before they talk about how they can still win the title. Cause all they have managed to do so far this season is somehow go from the front-end of the pack last year, to the midfield this year and collect a measly 4 points in 2 races and 7th position in the constructors. Mclaren seem much too focused on good PR than tangible results.....

@darth, it's funny how people like you come on to these forums and make these pronouncements that are completely untrue simply because of your own prejudice against a certain driver. At no time in the 2009 season did Jenson have a 2 second advantage over his 'peers', it was always much closer than that in qualifying. While Honda may have spent a small fortune developing a car for the 2009 season, having built dogs for the previous 3 years, the Brawn version of that organization had nothing like those resources and could not develop the car throughout the season the way some of their competitors could. That is why the Brawn went backwards in the latter part of the year, nothing whatsover to do with Jenson's driving ability.

@ Abdulla from Bahrain
Fact is,we from outside Britain have a different view of F1 racing as it seems.Its only in Britain that people believe Button is the best F1 racer.
They are even refusing refusing to accept Mclaren is going down the drain.Ron is a wimp and Whitmarsh, an incompetent.In the past years when they had issues,a driver's performance had masked the real problems whilst they sorted it out.This year,they have an incompetent leader of a driver who is clueless to car setups.This has compounded the problem and two midfield teams,Lotus and Merc.have made a leap to the fore.This has really unmasked their disastrous start.

Button from what I watch and read is one of the most pleasant people there is but another championship? Sorry I don't see it, remember before Brawn? All those races without even a podium, then when Brawn bought Honda and built the double diffuser, BAM there's a championship. What happened next? everyone had one Brawn started falling way and RBR took over. Now there's no double diffuser for anyone and he moved to Mclaren (who just so happens loose 2 of their most important people. McLaren is in a 10 year rebuild and Button won't be there long enough.

Hahaha! ...akaatia, pronounced Angelina (and all the other names you use), have you nothing else to say? It's always the exact same thing! Ok, we get it, Whitmarsh is a rubbish team leader, Jenson is a rubbish driver, and the one true genius, Lewis Hamilton held it all together at McLaren these past years even when he was being beaten by, um.... oh yeah, that rubbish driver Jenson Button. Funny how the facts just don't fit the narrative of the anti-Button brigade, and yet they persist in their drivel. You gotta admire their tenacity I suppose!

And what's all this nonsense about Jenson being a 'lucky WDC' because he was driving the 'best car'. It clearly wasn't the best car for the whole year for a kick off, and weren't Hill in 68, Rindt 70, Fittipaldi 72, Piquet 87, Senna 88, Prost 89, Mansell 92, Schumacher 2000-2004, Vettel 2011, etc, etc all driving the best cars?

It seems McLaren have something up their sleeve..Whitmarsh sounded quite optimistic in his last interview..
Also Button knows how to win so I'd be careful...
