Jenson Button is overrated - there's a reason he's not in a top powered car now. He simply isn't that good. Just another British media hype job, and IMO I think he started believing the hype rather than knuckling down to his driving.

He was great in his first season, then Frank preferred Montoya to him so he lent him to Renaults. I feel he was better in his early years, especially his 1st and 3rd year. Now he is just an average driver in a horrible car.

And I think that that is down to the fact he stopped putting the work in after that - that's the point I was trying to make, had Button continued to apply himself he would have been a good driver.

3) Jenson Button (even with british media support...)
4) David Coulthard (even been a nice person...)
5) Jarno Trulli (F1 races are from friday to Sunday, not only saturday...)




This is what i was going to say!
But button is a good and fast driver to be honest and not so overrated!

I don't even think he could get a drive in a top team even in a dream, he has already proven himself to be an untrustworthy liar by signing the contract with Williams and getting out of it. No top team would sign a driver who thy knew had done that
