So, basically, I think Jenson and Kevin are great, but Fernando and Seb are, well, better.

Even though, when the Mac and Ferrari were closer in performance, Jenson did no worse than Alonso.

Now we are getting down to the real nitty gritty they can't get who they want because the car is crap and Alonso for one is not getting any younger, he wants another championship so why would he go to Mclaren other than money. As for Vettel and Hamilton going to Mclaren just how likely is that given that Hamilton walked out and Vettel is a Red Bull man. I know anything can happen in F1 and usually does but I suspect if Button stays it will be on a much reduced contract possibly pay by results for one last season.

Did anyone seriously think they would get alonso or vettel they will just keep jenson and Kevin for Next year put vandoorme at marussia and see what happens when the driver merry go round starts in 2015 for 2016 plus it will give them a chance to see what they can do in year 1 of the honda era

I like his language! He always gets to the point and in doing so he is always entertaining. This guy should have never left the team. No chance to replace this guy. It is too long since they won their last championship. Never the less, their car looks terrific and it would be exciting to see it take the wins again! :-)

WOW! That's a real backhanded "slap" in the face for Jenson, considering he's a one-time WDC just like Kimi and Lewis. RD's indirect way of saying his drivers are just......ordinary.

If I were Jenson, I'd be looking to go to Force India or Sauber - where they are not doing much worse than Mac and where the team owner will not dislike me so blatantly.
