Jenson should be nick named Mr Teflon. He is so smooth and always so positive. Nothing bad to stick on him.

He may not be the fastest in F1 but he is always there or thereabouts.

Having done it all, his experience has to be invaluable particularly when the cars lack performance as they do right now!

Lets hope that McLaren will keep him going for another year to two.

Agree, I think he is there or thereabouts, I'd rate him as excellent bang per buck compared to those around him in the paddock, not just in the car but PR etc..... he's quite the role model nowadays.

I'd like to see him have at least one more season at McLaren, if only to see what he can do with that new Honda drive unit, I am pretty sure that they get a bum deal on the Mercedes power units, in terms of optimised mapping

I think he may get one more year with Mclaren as they may find it difficult to attract anyone of the other major drivers due to current performance and next's year Honda performance uncertainty.

I've alawys liked Button, hes not the fasted but probably the most intelligent driver on the track. He's also consistent like Alonso.

Hes 3 years with Hamilton as a team mate showed the strengths and weaknesses of both drivers. Button eventually come out on top in points terms which is important to the team, but hamilton had more races wins which looks good.

I consider him on par with the likes of hamilton, alonso, kimi and Seb all of which have their strengths and weaknesses.

I do however think a move to Ferrari is in the future, just a hunch.

bill.stark.12382: I'm reading the end of a career here. Glad he got his long second chance and lucky title though


Right team, right place, right time.

However Ross Brawn was there 6-8 months prior to Honda leaving so may be he was aware of the potential of the team.
