In 2012 instead of asking McLaren to support Lewis by offering his support, he stole the team’s focus into ensuring that he himself doesn’t get lapped as opposed to Hamilton lapping everyone else…
Well, I don’t know how did you came to that conclusion, but for the sake of the argument lets pretend that all of that is true. I still have some questions about your opinion.
1) If the updates are working for driver A, but make driver B’s performances miserable, what is the preferable strategy? Make the car even more suited to driver A, so it would make driver B’s performances even worse, or make the car more suited to driver B, which would not affect driver A, but raise B’s performances?
2) Why are you so sour about JB not helping Lewis? Tell me, how could JB have helped him in 2012? The only way he could have helped him if he was ahead and then let Lewis through, but usually it was Hamilton who was ahead. Are you saying that those 2-3 points which he took from Lewis could have won him the WDC, or what?
Last year Hamilton was the better driver, with a lot of bad luck, Button just got screwed with the tyres as Hamilton in 2011. In 2011 Button was better because of the tyres, and he avoided Massa. In 2010 I would say they were equal, someone says that he was out of the game before Hamilton, which is true, but those people forget that Button was taken out in Monaco by a mechanic, and in Belgium by Vettel.
