Hi mate! I didn't want to come down on Vettel's move since it was not that bad (mainly because Button backed off), but to point out he is going the wrong direction. He is not (yet) one of the bad guys, but he should be more mature, at least from now on. And "others do it too" and "they started it" are boyish excuses Now seriously, most of these guys don't behave with the care and respect for each other they should. Maldonado's swipe on Hamilton should have seen him banned. Hamilton in the other hand, keeps getting into too much trouble. And gets penalties for almost everything, things others get away with. Which does not help the sport. Nor having drivers as Safety Marshals who crash an Audi at LeMans on a overly aggressive 2 car overtake at the beginning of the race, and 2 weeks (+/-) later in Monaco punish Hamilton (twice if I recall correctly) for being a lot less reckless. There's a lot of work to be done here... As for Button, I really think he is now a complete racing driver, and his moves (albeit too discrete for some to notice - I mean the media, not you) are the gutsiest I've seen in the last years of F1. As is Alonso. They are the likes of Lauda and Stewart as you said, and that places them right there on the top. Right under the #1 spot. Which is the best thing any of the current F1 drivers can do, as they are not or will ever be "God-like". They almost all think they're the next Senna and guess what? If they were, it would have shown by now. The sooner they convince themselves of it, the better for them, and for the sport.
