Ross Brawn Endorses Jenson Button


Ross Brawn has spoken out about his impressions on Jenson Button

Many have asked what Ross would do with which driver or waht changes, if any, would be made to the dirver line-up. In what could only be described as a job security nudge for Jenson Button, Ross Brawn has shared his confidence in the young British lad.

“There are some drivers who win races they shouldn’t, and that was the case with Michael. Now I don’t know what level Jenson is at, but I’ve no reason to think he won’t be at that level. What I have seen are occasions when there is this equalisation of the cars and he has always been quite prominent.

“You look at when Fernando Alonso was at Minardi. He was always one of the quickest drivers in the wet because those conditions had an equalisation effect. So you look for those things, and I see Jenson quite strong in those conditions out of ratio with where he should be because of the car he has driven. So he has the characteristics, no doubt. He’s already won a race, and he’ll win a lot more if we give him the equipment.”

That being said, I think Ross can recognize talent and has a known entity in Rubens. Perhaps Jenson is safe for now but according to Grace, and I agree with her, Honda is his only hope. So it’s important that Ross thinks he’s in the right team at the right time.

Jenson has the talent and has more or less kept his head down avoiding any Webber outbursts, or Alonso pram antics. The current arrangement suits both parites as Jenson is certainly talented and Honda would struggle to attract anyone of similar quality, currently.

(shake shake) fastest in testing this week – nothing to do with the fact we’re the only team out there.


I would love to have Ant in the team. That lap at Spa last season showed he has something and deserves his chance. I also admire the way he goes about his business, whereas someone like Webber moans about being midfield and moans about everything else apart from his glorious ability.


I endorse him too! Jenson Ooh eight, we can’t wait! Button for president! I reckon he’d beat Obama, Hillary and McCain on accent alone. You guys love a foreign accent over there. Actually i’d love to run over there, the money that gets contributed is obscene. All i’d need is some slight of hand and I’d have enough to set up my own F1 team. Which brings us back to Jenson. I wouldn’t employ him in my team, he’s decidedly average. I reckon give him the right car and he’d win some more races but it’s not often you just… Read more »
