Button damns statistics for Istanbul F1 glory

The top ten was completed by former world champions Raikkonen and Alonso, followed by Nick Heidfeld in the second BMW, the luckless Nakajima, McLaren duo Hamilton and Kovalainen, Scuderia Toro Rosso rookie Sébastien Buemi, Piquet – who enjoyed an entertaining, literally wheel-to-wheel scrap with erstwhile GP2 Series rival Hamilton mid-race – Sutil and Sébastien Bourdais.

All the talking after the race, though, was focussed on the winner, who has now equalled a record held by the great Michael Schumacher and Jim Clark in triumphing in six of the first seven grands prix of the campaign. Should he make it seven out of eight next time out, get ready for the party to end all parties at Silverstone in a fortnight's time...

After Brazil last year, I didn't think this sport could get any better. A part of me even wanted to stop watching. I really should have. Button's mind-numbing domination has destroyed my love for the sport I have followed for close to 11 years. In that time, I have not missed a single race, and haven't missed one live in over 5 years. Never before have I been so bored by this sport. At least Schumacher was the best driver on the grid when he dominated. Button's not even top 10. I suppose I should be thankful, though. Now I have more time for MotoGP, IndyCars and other series that aren't dominated by average drivers.

Son you are an idiot. If your fave driver was running away with it you would luv it.You Schumacher fan boy. Why hate Button so much ?, when Schumacher or Alonso performed like this they also had the best car.Stop being a hater.
