ferdi. i know it is all in the past, but i am just pointing out the fickleness of the fanboys.
button was quite composed when he asked the pits to calm down perez, and i personally found nothing to complain about there. t was a pure racing touch, that just happened between teammates. i have seen far far worse between teammates in other teams, so i cannot beieve some of the comments here. the first person you have to beat is your teammate.

how often have we seen the comment " he let his teammate through too easily"? that is not racing!

It's funny how the anti-hamilton brigade turned this thread into a Hamilton thread. The article is about Button and Perez! Please give the respect and attention they also deserve.

8 out of 10! Seriously. And how did you and Taipan CORRECTLY deduced that? Taipan brought Hamilton's name after the 2nd comment. How do you know that they are not Pro-Perez supporters? My point is that you don't know but you lot always assume that anyone who criticizes ANY driver is a Hamilton fanboy. That's why the threads turn into childish bickering instead of having healthy debates about racing issues and incidents.

Perez and Button deserve the same attention and coverage as any other driver so let's discuss them on this thread instead.

tdog. if you have been following this site for a while, you will have noticed that the lulu fans have a morbid fear of their idol being beaten by button, and so turn their vile on button as a matter of course. so i must agree with sunny and ty with their comment about FANBOYS (NOT about lulu, if you take note!)

Here's a hypothetical, devil's advocate question:

What's a driver to do when his engineer gets on the radio and says: "Ok, to win this race, I need you to give me 15 more laps on these tyres in this stint." Then his hard-charging teammate appears behind, on newer rubber. Is he to race his teammate at that moment and give the fans an exciting battle....or listen to his engineer and try to win the race?

It is more important to race the tires instead of those pestering you. Let them move by and follow the set out stradegy. Those fighting heavily usuall move backwards soon after. Button who is known for his smarts and race stradegy lost his head briefly and it cost him points.

f1rules. not so hypothetical! i remember in malaysia, seb was told to preserve his tyres as he would wear them out. he didnt listen, RACED, and still had tyres at the end. a good driver does not need to be told how to manage his tyres!

then again, also in malaysia, when webber was backing vettel into the mercs, he was told that his tyres were ok, and to speed up....he didnt, but i believe that was deliberate.

and then there was kimi, being told to look after his tyres, and he gave the appropriate answer.

a driver has the ultimate control, and is responsible for his own decision.

@richard

I get it, so the fanboys irk you. But you said yourself that you like to agitate them. Why? There is a reminder on top of the comment box that says "Please do not post any personal abuse or attacks." So why the hostility towards other posters who don't share your views.

"so i must agree with sunny and ty with their comment about FANBOYS (NOT about lulu, if you take note!)"

Not true. In the short time I've been here, you have already said some disparaging remarks about Hamilton, not just FANBOYS. Who the heck is sunny and ty?

The bottom line is that Perez can out looking good from the last race because he didn't puncture Button's tire or break his front nose wing or worse yet, crash both out. That line if very thin and Perez won this time.

If the same circumstances presented themselves, I'm sure Button would let Perez by and then preserve his tires to get a higher finishing position in the end.

tdog. first of all, yes, the fanboys do annoy me as it takes from the debate on a forum. and i have noticed that you appear to be one of those, who complains when aything is said about luln. and if you go to any of my comments, you will not find any where i have said anything that has been untrue.yes, you might not like the truth sometimes, but hey, this is part of democracy.
now, despite your protestations, it seems to be you who is turning this thread into a lulu debate. well done!
