Not sure why Button would get involved, he must have more than enough problems of his own to start talking up Hamilton. Hamilton will be fine when he finally gets to realise that he is not quite the superstar that he was told he was.

so, as button was the equal (or better) of lulu over the last few years, does that mean that he thinks that he would be able to shock us even more than lulu, if he was in the merc?

but maybe the shock is for all the lulu luvvers to finally find out that "the greatest" is not the greatest?

All those Lewis fan-boys who would have you believe that Hamilton can drive round a cars problems have, as in 2009, been proven wrong...again!

It's obvious that Lewis a great driver but, like other drivers (mere mortals like Kimi, Button, Alonso, Massa and Webber), he's had a few dips over the years, including just recently, and is not the ''new Senna' as some on here were crowing over the winter. Not by a long shot!

He should win a race this year but I think Rosberg will be more than a match while he's at Mercedes. If Lewis has a couple of DNFs to balance things up with Nico, I think Lewis will come off 2nd best by year's end!

JimCrint - I read almost all the articles and posts and don't remember anyone calling LH the next Senna.

Every driver will struggle to win without the best package. It's not like JB forgot how to race and can't ever win again. The McLaren is rubbish and JB/SP results show that. If the Redbull was equal to the McLaren in terms of pace SV wouldn't be winning either. It's all about the complete package Car/Driver/Pit stops.
