Had a tough time deciding between Button and Sato. They're both good drivers, but Buttons seems to have that consistancy Sato is unable to live upto. But yeah, then agin, he did have many retirments compared to Button.

MS, is fast but frankly, he's on top mainly bcoz of some "out of the world" pit strategy and luck. Cmon, how many times has he really had to fight it out, to win a race? In most cases he's just cruised away to victory.

At Indianapolis, RB had the faster car but decided to play 2nd fiddle. In Germany, Button almost got him, only if he wasn't demoted to 12th or 13th place, from where he still managed to come 2nd.

F1 has bcome so technical that even the smallest decission, can play spoilsport. I say, first thing they have to do is, stick to just one tyre mftrer. At Monza, the Ferrari's were running more than a sec quicker than the others in the later stages, so where's the competitiveness here, everthing finally depends on how the tyres perform for that particular track condition. Makes no sense.........

And coming to the best driver .... Michael Schumacher .. of course ...

Reasons? No need to say but ... surely its not easy to dominate and to lead a GP is never easy you have to maintain the gap ... push the car but not over the limit etc etc

schumi took RB's car because he had handling problems with his own..
handling has nothing to do with reliability
( .. and i had meant to say that schumi won that race )

and u can blame luck a few times..
not ALL the time !

I agree but when RB is on track suddenly only something happens which is not at all expected ...
In case of Brazil ... Ok all these years Brazil used to be very early in the season now this time its last we can blame in the start of the season about car's reliability but lets see this year ... RB's Luck vs F2004 reliability(and covered 17 races)
