@doodle - blimey, trawling the archives. Button was, at the time he joined Williams in 2000, the youngest driver to enter F1. In the first couple of seasons he did struggle with set-up but by 2004, as team leader at BAR he was consistently fast, on the podium, first pole position and things were looking good, which was why, in 2005, Honda bought out his Williams contract for $30 million!!! BAR were 2nd in 2004, so signing a multi-year deal seemed a good move on Buttons part. The fact that Honda could not produce a true front running car (until 2009, ironically just as they decided to quit) was not Jenson Buttons fault.
