Jenson Button

For those who heard his post race interview with ITV - does he sound like a man who's just itching to leave the team he's with ?

Several points I picked up on, not word for word, but basically he said the car has went backwards in every area since last year, he's very angry, and he doesn't see anything changing soon..

It's surely a slippery slope to get into as a F1 driver, because a) he wanted to leave the team, and b) now he has no confidence in the team and/or Honda to rectify that problems that they have had to the start of the season.

A very different, and sad Jenson Button compared to last year.

I got that impression as well, he seemed extremely frustrated and almost resigned. Thing is, with Heidfeld having done so well in Malaysia he may not neccessarily get a Williams drive next year. It's far too early for the team to completely give up though, they're in a better shape than McLaren were this time a year ago, and they still turned it round somewhat - Jenson could still ge thtat win, and 5th place could be beneficial to them if the Friday rules stay the same.

The way he spoke, err, spoke volumes about his apparent frustration. He was sort of talking in a combination of rage/hysterical disbelief/sadness. I really feel for Jenson, he could have been up front with Williams but instead he's parked at the side of the road before the race has really begun.

He should never have been stopped from leaving BAR for Williams last year I'm not surprised he's pretty ****ed off since BAR have been pretty crap compared to last year

this will hurt honda him saying that though, they promised him a championship by 2007 (iirc)
but on the flip side it might make them pull their finger out especially seeing toyota up where they were last year.

As far as I know - Jenson is contracted to Williams automatically for next year if he does not have 70% of the Championship leader's points after the Australian GP.

Probably a typo, but sounds like the deal he should have had.

Oh well, at least Nick can drive for BAR

I've heard the BAR escape clause was either Button must have at least 70% of the championship leader's points by Silverstone, or Button must have at least 70% of the championship leader's points by Monza.

Interviewing drivers straight after they have either retired, had an accident or finished a race will always bring out "from the heart" comments, I am sure in hindsight he may wish that he had been a little more diplomatic!

It happens to the best of us, K-B..

At work recently, I wrote down "Fame Academy" instead of "in workshop" as thats what I'd just finished talking to a workmate about.
