F1 » Button: Having Alonso as my F1 team-mate means a lot


I agree that Button will challenge Alonso and could surpass him in points next year. Alonso manages races well but so too does JB. Next year's car will have developed primarily from JB's input and driving style, not dissimilar from KM's, but definitely different that Fernando's. Jenson may have a car that suits him better for much of the season.

F1 » Dennis expects to promote more young F1 drivers


There is concern that the lower tier teams cannot survive and there is concern that young drivers cannot find race seats. And it was proposed that the main teams run three cars. Yet it seems only Red Bull has properly managed these tensions by creating a properly funded feeder team in Torro Rosso. Perhaps the future should see Mclaren or Ferrari purchases the Marussias of the world, fund them at a sustainable level, and use them as their trial by fire to F1 for their developmental drivers.

F1 » Dennis points finger at Hamilton for 2007 issues


I disagree that Lewis threw the first punch. Ron threw the first punch by telling Alonso he had number one status and then told Lewis he had equal status. The drivers responded as one would expect. Neither was pleased and both fought tooth and nail to win. Criticize them if you will but their alpha male mentality years later sees one winning another driver championship and the other commanding the largest salary in history. We might not like their antics but something is working right for both of them.

F1 » Dennis points finger at Hamilton for 2007 issues


Richard, I do not disagree but Ron admits that at one point in the season he gave Lewis reason to believe he could fight for the championship. It may have been informal and it may have been meant to motivate or perhaps pacify Lewis but regardless, Hamilton seized on his comments and the rest is history. Too often critics question Hamilton's intelligence, and I do question his statements from time to time. But you rightly point out that he played the ""Uncle Ron" card brilliantly. So, I still feel the ultimate responsibility for the falling out rests with Ron. Hamilton was a first year driver and Ron should have easily been able to manage him better. And by not doing so it cost Alonso and McLaren a championship. Oh, and I had forgotten the Heidfeld connection. Thanks for the reminder. Seems a long time ago.
