Lets take stock of the Button argument is better than Lewis.
Lewis beat Alonso on points in one season...
Button beat Lewis on points cumulative over 3 years
Does that make Button better than Alonso who beat the good Schumacher?
We all know Lewis is a better driver than Button. How is Button on 16m a yrear at Macca and getting his bottom spanked by Puss in boots makes me LOL

Steve, have a look at some fanboy comments and you'll see the mentality that gets on my t*ts.

First page of this thread, some clown claiming that Nico compromised his car set up to get pole, this is based on nothing other than a vivid imagination.

The Whitmarsh thread, another clown claiming that Button is a never has been driver. Yet you think it's a great achievement to beat a never has been 2 times out of 3?

But my favourite comment here is that the tyres in 2011 suited slower drivers, what a lot of boll*cks, why not just claim that the tyres in 2011 didn't suit drivers that kept crashing into things!

Kiwi, so you really think the Merc is a better car because of Lulu? Considering that he wasn't even involved in the design or development of that car that really is pushing the boundaries of your imagination.

To all the Lulu fanboys

Can you please tell me which driver was responsible for the 2009 MP4-24? I'm dying to know.

Then, can you please tell me which driver was involved in the development of that car throughout?

I only ask, because it was 10 races, that's right 10 races, before LULU was able to put it on the podium!

Surely it must have been Kovalainen's fault. After all, isn't Hamilton the worlds best setup/development driver who always provides setup info for his team mate?

@elijah/andy it seems some on here do post good comments but soon as Hamilton is mentioned or there is a Hamilton thread the same posters post becomes not credible or incredible. I cant understand why? Here we have a driver who broke records in his first year became champion in his second year and was still able to win GP'S in his 2009 season with a dog car and in 2010 along with Alonso and Vettel was the only drivers who were in contention for the WDC at the last race. and should of been 2012 WDC . So why all the negative comments towards him the guy who has put F1 back on the map single handedly As you guys say the anti Hami brigade and fan boys.

Taipan, calling another poster a clown because he has a different view to yours is not relly cricket old boy. And as for some getting on your manboobs it is a forum and this will happen from time to time , you know like when a poster goes on and on and on and on and on about a drivers earrings or their sideburns which has nothing to do with F1 apart from maybe that person looking cool i remember seeing a picture of James Hunt with sideburns so what?

As for the 2011 tires it seems the FIA wanted that season to replicate the Canada 2010 in making deliberately quick wearing tires. As Lewis is naturally an aggressive driver which was not a problem on the Bridgestone tires as he beat champions in the same car driving that way he did not figure that the more pedestrian driver like JB would not wear his tyre out as quick as the faster Hamilton. That simple TY.

In 2011

Driver that didnt crash into things = 3 wins
Driver that did crash into things = 3 wins
