I think Button's being very optimistic if he thinks Mclaren might be in a position to challenge for a win. The changes they've made so far while not being very extensive don't seem to have made any difference at all as they are still miles away from the quick boys. I'm not a believer in miracles and while Button has to parrot the company line he must know the car is not going to be a front runner. Also he can't be too happy that at his age he has lost another go at the championship purely because Mclaren have come up with a very poor car. Let's all hope next year's is a significant improvement because Button's career is going to end rather sooner than he wanted.

'The Mexican eventually came out on top, aided by Button needing to make a fourth pit-stop for tyres', really !! or posibly aided by Sergio being able to look after his tyres. Once JB pitted and got onto fresher rubber at the end he was taking 'tenths' out of Perez who was on tyres that had done an additional 7 laps. I think McLarens tyre whisperer has spoken

Perez must be careful about banging other drivers' car wheel and also car.
It shows lack of his car handling skill.
Perez can not win WDC with current driving skill.
Currently, he can not drive fast without mistake.
If he want to WDC and then he must change his attitude.

Agressively defending your position against a faster team mate is poorer form than attacking a slower team mate.

If there're no team orders for driver positions, then Button should have just moved over and let the faster team car take up the battle....

If this Mexican is giving Jensen fits on the track, then what does that say about Hamilton? I mean Jenson compared favorably to Hamilton. And now the Mexican is beating Jenson up. All three MUST be about equal as drivers. That is to say all three are AVERAGE drivers.
