    Wll done Jenson.. At last!

    Wonder if the cheating German will get penalised anyway for deliberately impeding De La Rosa after short cutting the corner?

    I dont think he'd have been classified anyway if he'd finished on those tyres.... they were total slicks by the time he pulled in.

    Unbelievable race though and fantastic to see Button come out on top.... so pleased for him cos he's worked so hard for it, and to finally get the win by being the best driver on the track rather than simply having the best car makes it even better. They always say that wet conditions seperate the boys from the men and to see raikonen, alonso, button and schumacher all come good in the race proves that he's as good as the best of them as a driver. Given the right package he'll be a champion one day i'm sure.


    Congrats Jenson and honda... lets hope its the first of many more!

    Again, brilliantly driven Jenson - a good day for Team Woodywizz in Fantasy F1 - Button & Heidfeld as drivers, Honda and BMW as engine and chassis.

    Congrats to Jenson.
    I can't help feeling that this was down to the ribbing that he got from Clarkson on last weeks Top Gear along with the practice in the reasonably priced car.

    Flame suite prepared BUT, would he have won if alonso & schumacher didnt get penalised and kimi hadnt make a mistake.

    Dont get me wrong but i really dont think that this is the start of any winning streak, are any of you prepared to back him for another win this year?

    I think he was in the right place at the right time. I hope i am wrong:smashin:

    To be fair, he's been in good positions before only to be let down by the car. I can't believe that despite Schumi being up to his usual tricks he still manages to get a point! I know 'you make your own luck', but he seems to have more than his fair share.

    Nice to see Button win, but I feel really sorry for Raikonnen - he must be the most unlucky driver out there currently!

    Are you forgetting that Jenson was also penalised with a 10 place drop on the grid and so started 14th.

    So, Kubica gets disqualified for being underweight by 2kg - gifting cheating german a point, but surely he would have had an illegal car with the worn-out-ness of his tyres! super aguri take note! fit a jet engine to the back of your car, then retire three laps before the end, you won't have to weigh in and you'll still get points. and points mean prizes.. apparently!
