Button’s five out of six

Jenson Button stormed to victory in Monaco, claiming his fifth win of the season, and he managed not to put a foot wrong all day. Well, until after the race was over…

He seemingly forgot that at Monaco when you win you drive your car down to where Prince Albert II waits to hand over the trophy, and instead carried on into the pitlane where he placed his car in parc ferme.

He then had to sprint all the way around instead, waving to fans as he did so, which the crowd loved:

“I’m not very good at parking! The race was pretty tough, but that bit with the helmet on makes you realise how long the pit straight is – but in a way it was the perfect way to end the race!”

You can check the full results on BBC Sport’s site.

At last after Williams stopped Jenson from showing his true potential he has a decent car under his bumb which goes to prob he is one of the bets on track.With the tutorship of Ross Brawn and the rest of the team it should be Jenson’s year.

What would now make it real F1 racing is to revert to FULL Fuel tanks in all sections of Qualifying and full tanks at the start with NO refueling and a return to Manual Gearboxes and it would prove who the top drivers would be and I’m sure Jenson would be in the top £.

Errr…. BAR came in second in the 2004 season, Honda was just the engine supplier.

Also, sack Hamilton, and McLaren, get Sir Jackie Stewart or David Coulthard in the car!

{Really, it’ll work, ish}

At the moment……

BRAWN GP- Hot property and leading a one-two.
RED BULL RACING- Doing well, no Brawn Reliability.
TOYOTA- Gone from pole and second in Bahrain to last and second last in Monaco. Speaks for itself.
McLAREN- Any way you look at it, terrible.
RENAULT-Getting there.
WILLIAMS- Not on the real pace at the moment.
STR-Averege, to be honest, Buemi doing great!
FERRARI-See Williams.
FORCE INDIA- Actually doing better than last season after Fisichellas 9th place. But still not doing very good.
BMW SAUBER- Promised a championship win and look where they are. Oh dear

Well i personal think the most improved driver this year is mark webber he finally has a car that suits him and he has done some great runs in it he just need to ace qualifying. like brawn and a race win is his.

have you noticed how well he blocks Alonso this year considering the kers he gets him every time.

Like F1mad above, only going even further, I’d like to see a year where the “powers that be” dictate a not just standard engine or tyre, but a single one-size-for-all car!
One engine supplier, one tyre supplier, one body/aerodynamics supplier, one chassis supplier, etc., the cockpit (sorry driver’s compartment) made to allow the drop-in of a seating module for a particular driver.
The mechanics could do adjustments anywhere to suit, say, Hamilton, Coultard, Button’s personal taste (oversteer, understeer, brake bias) etc, but the car would be drawn by lot from a pool of independently maintained supply, delivered say one week before testing at each racetrack.
This would prove who is the best driver in each race – a good driver can transcend a not so good car, look at some of the great early open wheeler drivers – while a poorer driver would never go better, even in a really good car.
I admit some spectators dislike one-make support races, but at least one season would cut down a lot of the arguements of “XX is a much better driver than XX, just held back by a crap car/engine/ body package” we hear every year.

seriously speaking… i really think that F1 would be more exciting if each driver would drive for different constructor for each circuit… i.e. jenson would drive for ferrari in australia, then for brawn in malaysia, mclaren in china, etc…

they could have a pre-drawn race list before the start of the season so each constructor could prepare the car for each driver and for each circuit.

at the end of the day, the best constructor and the best driver would have accumulated more points regardless of who is driving and who is the constructor, respectively.

the financial side could be a big issue like who’s going to pay the drivers.. but i’m sure someone can sort it out… the fota/fia for example could get fixed amount from each constructor and then they can recruit/test drivers and negotiate salaries. Constructors bonuses will be paid to drivers based on accumulated points…

all constructors will be more motivated to make the best car (as they have more chance to score due to good drivers driving their car)… and drivers will be more motivated to race harder (for glory and of course bonuses).

Its nice to see another British racer winning again. It wouldn’t have been as easy for him if it wasn’t for Brawn GP.

I really think he deserves to be with Brawn, because he is such a talanted driver and hasn’t had the chance to prove himself until now! so well done lads and well done Button!

Yeah must agree JB has had this comin’ for a long time and the schtick he has taken over the years would have seen off a lesser man and left him with only his model girlfriend, his huge pile of sweaty cash and his crushing bitterness for company!

I will toast your win with the finest sparkling chardonnay available at my local discount German supermarket! ( recession buster )

Watched F1 since 1982, and I am now bored to death by what happens on the track and I’m embarrassed by whats happening off it. The sport has been mismanaged into mediocrity. Max, Bernie, You can keep it.

Would like to know what nationality are the people saying its boring ?
are these the same people that said last season was boring ?
do the same people think watching schuie winning race after race in a red car was great ?
If next season starts with say Vettle winning race after race will that be boring ?
F1 is a car chase who’s got the best car win’s.
Thats F1. simple :-))

Some of you have it right,good points/observations. Rubens is solid but still Mr.Backup. I can’t see a team rolling out an inferior “second” car so if it was meant to be Rubens would have had a title by now, its a shame tho. PW4 comment 41 hits the nail on the head.. if everything clicks and you are feeling good you will have a great day (paid that much I cant imagine having a bad one!) still Lewis is young and lets his mouth/emotions run a bit as he is used to good tackle to work with. The other drivers are all special of course,glad to see Jensen on it.
A once a year event with each driver having 10 timed laps in each make/team car (after he has got it setup to his preference)on a randomly drawn circuit and count towards a third of the championship points maybe…? should sort the men from the boys…
Oh and by the way if ’89’ is stigsdad I must be ‘grandad’
