Button Engine Change

Jenson Button's had an engine change and will incur a +10 places grid penalty.

So finally Button get's a failure. It seems like it should have happened long ago, but Sato has taken most of it up to now. Too bad for Jenson. This doesn't help his aspirations to get back on the track for podiums. Did they say what the problem was?

I'd be interested to see speed trap times, to see who's looking particularly strong. It's still a relative power circuit - great overtaking spot into the hairpin at the end of the main straight - can't wait to see Sato into there on race day!!!

Shame. Bang goes any chance of a podium for BAR this weekend then.

Better now than on Sunday, but that penalty seems a might harsh (especially when it hits home). I wonder how Sato will respond; can't be too good for his psyche.

It'll be intersting to see how JB responds to this both in quali tomorrow and in the race on Sunday. I think it's a distinct possibility that the BARs will be running on different strategies now.

Bad luck for Jenson, but it's certainly overdue considering the siutation in the team. Drivers in this position have scored good points finished by simply skipping qualifying and running heavy, which hopefully BAR will be smart enough to do.

I am not sure you can say its bad luck if an engine blows on a friday (it is BAD LUCK when it goes on Sunday). Most of Honda engines have gone on Sundays this season.

Thats not to say it still will not go on Sunday!

Big shame, as Button is out of the real top I think.

It is possible to climb from the back, just ask Fisichella who has done it twice this year. With good strategy of course.

He can't compete much anyway with it being close at this circuit...if McLaren AND Williams are competitive this weekend then BAR have no chance.

Not sure, if not they must be catching up with Mercedes.

Anyone know the score, Sato's Honda Vs Kimi's Merc on blow-ups?
