Hate is a strong word, but I really really really dont like him. He is a really nice guy, and if he was not in F1 it would be all fine & dandy, but he is an F1 driver, and that comes with some responsibilities too. I was a fan of Button since he started his F1 career, but I did not like his way of handling things off the track. With Vettel it is the other way around. I do think he is fast, and he is a match for everyone, but I dont like his personality on the track. It all started in 2009 when he joined RB, in 2008 I was happy that he won in Monza, but what he did throught 2009 & 2010 have made me turn away. Crashing into other cars all the time, not just bumping, but seriously crashing, then taking no responsibility at all. Yes he said he made a mistake, but thats not taking responsibility, its admitting his fault, he did not learn from those mistakes and contuined to do them, and that is what annoys me the most. In 2011 he did less stupid things because he was not in a position to do them, but when he was, he was lucky to get away with them, his ‘superb’ pass on Alonso in Monza, was just plain stupid, he could have overtake him elsewhere, but was very opportunistic, and he made the pass, but had he slipped, it would have been the same thing as 2010 Spa. In Suzuka, he cut through the track & pushed Button off, but if it wasnt Button, he would have a nice DNF there.
So all in all, I think he is a fast driver, and I was happy that he won in 2010 because that meant Alonsos did not win (in my view he wouldnt deserve it because the Hockenheim incident), but his sheer stupidity makes me dislike him, just as Maldonado or Grosjean.
