Shrieky, Would you be saying the same if he had been driving up Lulu's chuff? No I didn't think so.

I was a good battle to watch but he went over the line. Only good fortune prevented a crash that would have taken both McLaren's out, and if that had happened he would be feeling like a prize bellend right now.

Not too sure why Perez would feel the need to apologise, there are no team orders at Mclaren and he appeared faster than Button who drove him off the track at one stage. Button might well be frustrated at the poor car that Mclaren have provided but he can't expect Perez to sit behing him just because he is nominally No2. If the car improves Button might well have to up his game which will be no bad thing given his erratic form. He said the new car was the best and now that we know it is not he will have to battle it out like everybody else, his teammate included. I would'nt mind betting that Perez ends up with more points than Button by seasons end.

They are in a bit of a sticky situation. I may be naive and not entirely knowledgeable of the facts, but I guess that some of the appeal of Perez to Mclaren was the sponsorship he will bring when Vodaphone withdraw at the end of the season.

Whitmarsh now finds himself in the unenviable situation of having to balance the interests of the team and keeping Perez happy, to guarantee the sponsors coming on board, as well as keeping Jenson happy. It has overtones of the Hamilton/Alonso saga in the sense of conflicting interests throughout the team and we know how that all ended.

Someone has to take control in that team. Is Whitmarsh the man to do that? I don't think so.

He didn't go over the line. Button refused to yield the position to Perez. IF Button was smart he would have moved over saved his tires and then repassed Perez in a couple of laps. Instead he fought his team mate and then cried over the radio for help.

Why the hell should he apologise ????

I want to see more wheel to wheel racing , Button could not take his ass being handed to him by perez after the years of lewis doing the same thing to him.

If he was really a team player like he makes out he would of let perez through rather then running him deliberatively of the track when perez was clearly faster !!

What Button did was deliberate while the touching of wheels and clipping of front wing were from perez was racing.

i mean this car was supposeledy designed around him and perez was faster with a busted front wing lol

EDIT by CRASH.NET! Attacks on others will be removed. Stay on topic.

Perez should only apologize if he actually damaged Jenson's or his car to the point where either of them couldn't continue and cost the team points. It was good racing and Jenson only called the pit because he was hit, nothing else. If Perez didn't hit Jenson, I don't think there would have been a call.

I think Perez has been unleashed and will start putting more pressure on Jenson. Expect more hard racing. Good for f1.

I think Perez weaves a bit too abruptly and his moves at times are a bit unpredictable. He needs to improve in this regard and he will. As for his battle with Jenson? Well, I am a JB fan but Perez had every right to attack and Jenson had every right to defend. I am glad we got to watch the battle instead of team orders coming into play. I think some of the emotion is similar to the first time Alonso was attacked by Lewis when they were at McLaren. Alonso was not pleased because the new guy was giving him grief. That is F1. Always young, fresh talent on the way up.

Tdog. My comment was aimed at Lulu's one eyed followers not the driver himself.
We all know that any driver that's ever challenged Lulu is instantly hated by the fanboys. Just look at the insults that Crash have had to remove from this thread already, funny how they don't seem to trouble you.
