The fantastic high of brasil, the emotions and insane fun (as bbc forum showed live for an hour) was so intense could any driver or team try and repeat?

Jenson knew the Merc buy in, all changing, so why not do the same thing.Leave on a high.

As to loyalty, working backs against the wall then being sold to Merc, is hard for any engineer or racer to accept. They both work for money but excel out of passion, and I can understand why he moved on.

Brawn Gp and JB both had decisions were making decisions in private about life after 2009, which changed the relationships, so acrimony was inevitable.Any one who has been taken over knows, nothing will change, is a long way from the reality
