    How can you call it 4-1 after Spain? I get the Hamilton technical disqualification from the session but really? It was a technical ruling. Button didn’t even make into Q3!! If you’re going to call it a form guide then it should be 5-0. Use an asterix to explain the assumption/s you’ve made so it’s clear.

      it’s clearly 5-0 in qualy
      the graph shows it as 5-0 anyway
      what about lewis’ gearbox pen in china? if you won’t say 5-0 you should say3-2, not 4-1.

    Yet Autosport name Button best driver!

    Lots of talk about how great Alonso was this year, but I think Hamilton driving also reached new levels of skill and maturity. Supreme controlled attacking aggression.
