Button is king!

button300They said that Jenson Button would, at best, limp to the World Drivers’ Championship title at the next race in Abu Dhabi, but he proved the critics wrong with a breathtaking drive at the Brazilian GP.

With some stunning overtakes early on in the race, it was clear Button wanted to take the title home with him today – and didn’t put a foot wrong the whole race.

Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel drove as hard as he could to make up for yesterday’s qualifying mistakes, but he just couldn’t do enough to stave off Button’s charge.

And Jenson’s teammate Rubens Barrichello had a tough day as soon as he slipped back to second place, after the first pit stops, behind eventual race winner Mark Webber (Red Bull).

Button has had a stunning season from the off, winning six of the first seven races and then maintaining his championship lead with a little luck. And whatever his critics have said, he is now the 2009 World Drivers’ Champion.

And I, for one, am pleased as punch for him. (I also predict that he won’t turn up for his PR duties at the Bluewater shopping centre on Tuesday.)

So what do you think – a worthy champion or a very lucky boy?

And anyway, can all the haters (of which mutton and konsf1 shall remain nameless) give Jenson a break? Yes, he and Rubens may have had an advantage at the start of the season but do you see any1 bitching about Barrichello? Exactly. (But i don’t want to start anything either. Rubens really got close this time round, commiserations to him.) Just let him prove that he really can do this. Besides, no Brit’s ever retained the title before, so he could make history. So let him do it.

In the begining of the season when the Brawn team could do no wrong I had an interesting thought. This is it:(I’ll tell you in advance it’s my attempt at humor) The FIA has beat the hell out of the sport for about the last 10 years with rule changes. They did all this to try to even the field and make the racing closer. Through all this there has been one constant.”Ross Brawn” All of the money spent by all of the teams over those years to comply with the rules has to be hundreds of millions.They could have achived the same result by just banning “Ross Brawn”.The guy’s a magician.

To illustrate my point better in post #230 look at Ferrari in 2000.they won the championship for the first time in 21 years.21F***ing years.Ferrari.What was different,Ross Brawn, Michael Schumaher and Jean Todt.What this team did is nothing short of a miracle.They made history and this new tean that was unheard of last year could do the same going foward.And that is not lost on Jenson Button,he will want to be there to play his part in that magic.
