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

What has that got to do with Button making the right call on tyres and Hamilton making the wrong call? Button was 55 seconds in front of Hamilton before Button went in for his pit stop.

I'd say that's a Tyre call Hamilton got wrong. Again.

"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"

Ummm...sorry, but that's a load of crap.

Both Hamilton and Button were radioed and told there were inters in the pits if they wanted them. Hamilton decided he did, Button decided he didn't.

Once again, wrong call by Hamilton and right call by Button. Don't even try and blame the team, it was Hamilton's decision 100%.

C'mon Andy, must try harder...

Most pundits forecast Jenson would get 'wiped out' by Lewis when he joined McLaren. It was to his credit that he acquitted himself extremely well, and is now the mainstay of the team. He is driving a car that was probably built for Lewis, with Lewis' input. It is a dog.
Of course he was enthusiastic about the car initially. He is paid to be. His comments thrown back at him were uttered prior to driving the darn thing, and he has remained committed and focused since. He must be hugely disappointed, but NEVER complains, just gets on with it. The rabid comments I see directed towards him must stem from the fact that he stacked up very well against Lewis, and he remains one of the best ambassadors and drivers the sport has. Lewis WOULD NOT put this car further up the points, he would probably drive its legs off and crash out with less points than Jenson, and grumble too. Criticisms are for discussion off air twixt driver and Principles, anything less is not helpful, but destructive. Jens
