At no time did Button ask Whitmarsh to impose some kind of team order. It's amazing how the haters interpret these things. Button just didn't appreciate a driver weaving towards him at top speed on the straight. If Button put the squeeze on Perez coming out of the next corner, Perez had it coming and it shows that Button is anything but meek unlike some of you suggest. Button is one of the best racers in the business, he did some good moves in this race. But the haters see what they want to see, hear what they want to hear....etc. So far this season Jenson has out-qualified Checo 4 out of 4, and outraced him 3 out of 4 and according to some of you it's all over for Button after one bad result! Give it a rest!

Mclaren must be a bit careful here. Martin W said that Checo was a bit soft in the opening 3 races and that he needed "sharper elbows". I agree that this should not be to the detriment of the team but they can't ask him to be more aggressive and them slam him for when it happens.

"we already know that button is not a team player"

Really? And how do we know that?

Oh, that's right, he didn't just roll over for Hamilton and actually raced and beat him while they were team mates -clearly not a team player if he doesn't just roll over for Hamilton.

Or maybe it was because he wasn't a sullen little bitch like Hamilton and the grown ups on the McLaren team actually preferred him to Hamilton - shock of all horrors, what sort of a man comes in and pulls a stunt like that!

Clearly not a team player.

Oh, hang on, I know why he's not a team player. After Perez beat him on Sunday didn't he get on Twitter like a little bitch and tweet sensitive team data to the world?

Oh, hang on, that wasn't him was it...

Button was just surprised that Perez finally decided to race him. He spent three years at Mclaren racing Lewis although losing to Lewis 2-1 over those three years and once while holding the WDC tittle. He is a driver who does not need or want team orders although can be sneaky as we saw at Turkey 2010 and will be ready for Perez the next time he decides to race him.

Personally i enjoyed watching both the Mclaren boys race and i will always respect Mclaren for their policy on no team orders, as Lewis has raced and beaten two world champions under Mclarens racing policy and remains the only driver out of Vettel,Alonso and Kimi to race his teammate without team orders.
