Button being beaten by Fisichella is not such a bad thing. Remember, in those Benetton years Fisi was considered an up and coming prospect who just needed a decent car.
You could site many of Fisi’s team moves as bad decisions – He left Jordan, just as they got good, and went to Benetton, who at the time were a front running team. They slipped down to one of the slowest teams, so Fisi went back to Jordan, who had just finished being good, while Benetton morphed into Renault and started moving back up the grid again.
Ok, so he eventually ended up back with Renault, but he then showed that he couldn’t really handle being in a top team.
Another bad move was Trulli to Toyota. Ok, so he didn’t exactly choose to leave Reanult and it wasn’t really his fault, but even by the time Flavio fired him he was beating Alonso. Had he stayed on there, I reckon he could have made 2005 a much tougher title for Alonso to win.
