@MFornirina....
Wait a minute...Wasn't LuLu's so called...worst year in F1...2009?....The same year he was caught lying to race stewards and got DSQ?....Haha...I guess 2011 would be the worst year because Button got the best of him...and Lulu fans saying...it would never happen....due to LuLu being such the great driver compared to Button and McLaren being LuLu's team....haha....

With this year's tires and Button's driving style, when Macca sorts out that car, he has a better chance than Lewis in the Merc, which is too hard on its tires.

@ omo

Lewis and Button were on different strategies. Period.

It got me wondering when Button said that Nico will be surprised by Lewis' pace but it turns out that Nico might just match Lewis,

Is Lewis overrated? If he is, then is Nico faster than Button? If Nico is faster than Lewis, could he possibly be better than both Lewis and Button? Is Nico underrated? Is Button slower than Nico and Lewis if both are equally matched? Hmmmmm..

Yup! Too much trashing of JB on this site. He has dominated every teammate, including Villeneuve who is no slouch, and he is dominating Perez this year. His only equal was Lewis who is arguably a bit quicker. Still, JB's performance with respect ot his teammates over the years has been impressive.

ben ind said "Too much trashing of JB on this site. He has dominated every teammate".

every teammate? not ralf schumacher. not fisi. only just one place ahead of trulli. yes he beat jv but vlnv was not stellar after his wdc year. jb beat sato and rubens. even if you twist statistics, jb did not "dominate" hamilton. perez is still new to car and team and is only 3 races in. so you really cannot say jb has dominated every teammate.

@Andy

"And when exactly was Button favoured with race strategy? Do you mean as far as the right tyre call whenever it started/stopped raining?

Well he only did that twice.... Aus and Chn 2010...."

Really dude? Really?

Like all Hamilton fans you seem to have a selective memory.

How about Brazil 2012? It was only 4 races ago.

What about Hungary 2011?

Should I go on?

andy. how do you know button only asked about fighting, when he saw lulu? did you hear every word of conversation between pit and car? NO, you only heard one specific message courtesy of the broadcasters!

apart from that, it was an actual fight for position, and sometimes preserving tyres when you are on a two stop strategy is more important than trying to get one over your ex teammate.

--------------

Brazil 2012 ............... well 2 drivers ahead of Button DNF.... Reminds me me of Hungary 2006

Hungary 2011.......... Yeah thanks to Martin Whitmarsh who actually apologised later on that they put on the wrong tyres on Lewis's car,when the whole grid put on a new set of dry tryes, but they decided to put a set of Inters on Lewis's car.

Didnt Jenson call for the wrong tyres in Korea 2010

Any blog about Jenson seems to always turn into a Hamilton v Button fest. I defend Button because I think he's a lot better than some people give him credit for. If you really must compare like for like, you've got to look at what Lewis did in 2009 to what Jenson is doing now. A dog of a car is a dog of a car! You can't haul it up the grid on talent alone, as Lewis found out in 2009. If Jenson had got 5th, or even 3rd in Malaysia it would have one of the best examples of damage limitation ever seen in F1, given how much faster the front runners are. And it wasn't his driving that let him down, was it? If he gets another top five in Bahrain there's still hope for McLaren although a pretty slim one.
