Thought it was funny when the commentator said, when Button was 4 miles from the end, 'that's about as far as it is from his home in Frome to his local pub.' That's utter rollocks; there's a pub across the road from his dad's old garage. It's all of 15m away.

Still, nice to see him finally take the final step. Together with Jon Clarke, he's doing the Frome name proud.

Maiden win for Button in Hungary

button_hungary_win_1.jpg


After six seasons and 113 grand prix starts, Jenson Button has finally scored a race win after taking the chequered flag in the rain-affected Hungarian Grand Prix.

The Honda driver crossed the line comfortably ahead of McLaren's Pedro de la Rosa and BMW Sauber's Nick Heidfeld - the podium perhaps reflecting the nature of an action-packed and at times chaotic race.

The result has no major effect on the championship race, with title contenders Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso both retiring.

After starting 15th on the grid, Renault's Alonso had risen to hold a commanding lead before a drive shaft failure signalled his demise on lap 52.

Meanwhile, struggling to score precious championship points as his tyres disintegrated, Schumacher retired from fourth place late in the race, his car suffering damage after being overtaken by Heidfeld.

Button's team-mate Rubens Barrichello finished fourth, ahead of Red Bull's David Coulthard, Toyota's Ralf Schumacher, BMW Sauber's Robert Kubica and Ferrari's Felipe Massa.

I would defintely call them a joke. they are miles off the pace at the moment and I think the year before as well. maybe with the toyota engines next year they might go a bit better.

button finally gets a win. might be another 113 before he gets another

With never-achivers like Webber and Rosberg behind the wheel and last years Cosworth engine, I'm not supprised their slower then the front runners. No-one could expect decent results with a **** package like that.

i can't believe I'm defending Williams. *slaps face*

It's a bit hard for Webber to acheive anything when everytime he gets himself into a podium position his shitmobile packs it in.



In other news, Webber and Coultard have signed with Red Bull for the 2007 season.
