Button has signed a deal with McLaren, however McLaren say Hamilton is still going to be their lead guy on the track- another Hamilton /Alonso situation if you ask me!

Also, McLaren are now independent of Merc' after Merc' sold their 40% interest - don't know who to though.

Mercedes will continue to supply engines for McLaren for the next five seasons - with the team continuing to be known as Vodafone McLaren Mercedes. :-))

Strange season just passed - I think of the manufacturers who supply engines to others it was only the Ferrari outfit that finished in front of their engine customers.

What am I to do?
Last week my daughter was in an F1 shop,
rang me up and asked me if I wanted a Brawn GP
Jenson cap 25
I said yes!
It now will either be a rare cap to put on Ebay
or I can spray it blue put a propellor on it
and save buying a Mayhemer Cap
Such is life!

Yours Aye

I am sick of hearing about these two "Prima Donna,s,..when Button won the championship,it was hailed as a great acheivement by a"British driver"and that made it back to back wins for British drivers,...they are no more British than flying in the air,..It might say British on their passports but thats about it,They have chosen to live in the tax free haven of Monaco,..why, ..greed,pure and simple,and the same can be said of that other two well known "celebrities"Coulthard andConnery,they,re no more Scottish than  Button or Hamilton are British,

"So the Scottish aren't British anymore then Wullie."

We,re,only British when it suits us,just like the English,Welsh and Irish but,collectively we,re all British,but then again there are some in England,who say they are not English,like in Cornwall,Cornish first English second,British third,
When we Scots go abroad, we are forever asked "you are English,"Not you are British"and when this happens,I say, I,m Scottish,but I speak English to communicate, {-)
In Germany,this happens also,If you say to a man from Bayern, "you are German,"he will say,nein,I am Bayern first,Geman second,

Wullie,

Mr Brawn is Scots isnt he?
He has joined up with the Mercedes first German second guys
The National Anthem will not be played for them next year
The British? one I mean
It will be for McClaren
Mind you Bruce McClaren was an antipodean!
