"Brawn redesigned the car, switched engine from Honda to Mercedes and added a DD that gave the car an almost 2 second advantage over the nearest competitor..."

Is it any wonder Hamilton fans have a bad name and are thought of as complete numpties with statements like that?

C'mon then genius, enlighten us all at what race exactly was the brawn 2 seconds quicker than the nearest competitor?

In fact, how bout you enlighten us at what race the Brawn was even 1 second quicker?

And once you've done that, how bout you you tell us at what race was the brawn even 7/10ths quicker?

And then, enlighten us all at what race did the Brawn out qualify the next fastest car by a bigger margin than the red bull managed in 2011?

I'm waiting...

" a WC, 15 Grand Prix wins, 49 podiums, over 1,000 points scored in your Grand Prix career and beat a guy in the same team that is touted as the fastest driver in F1"

and this is what you call a great result from a top driver after 231 races and 13 years? Give me a break.
Hamilton: 21 wins, 51 podiums, 950+ points, 26 poles and all of this in 113 races in 7 years
Alonso: 31 wins, 88 podiums, 1400+ points, 22 poles, all of this 201 races in 12 years
Vettel: 27 wins, 48 podiums, 38 poles, 1100 points, all of this in 96 races in 6 years

How in the world can you put Button in the same league as those 3? No need to be a fan of Hamilton (or Alonso or Vettel) to express disappointment over one of the most underachiever and overrated F1 driver by the name of Button.

@Ben

More dribble coming out of your mouth mate?

So I'm still waiting for you to answer my last post.

But anyway, yes Button has been in f1 for 13 years, but has only been driving a car capable of winning the WDC since 2009 - 4 years.

Hamilton has been in a winning car his entire f1 career.

Mclaren could have simply found a better driver. Replacing Hamilton with Perez has ensured mclaren will no way be near the title hunt this year. Maybe they could have signed Massa , Hulkenberg, Paul di Resta. Better & mature drivers.

Comparing Perez and Grosjean, Grosjean has crashed more but has accomplished more too. Perez is simply not first rate material. One of Whitmarsh's blunders. The sooner he is out of F1 car, the better for sport
