Let's not overlook...This year he's made the accusation that the red cars were trying to wreck silver cars, forgetting the time Hamilton, who was branded "stupid" by Raikkonen, was handed a 10-place grid penalty for shunting the world champion out of the 2008 Montreal race in a pit-lane collision. Then remember another (2011) Canadian Grand Prix when he was involved in three separate incidents before he was forced to retire. Initially he tagged and spun Mark Webber, then later ran wide as he attempted a pass on Nico Rosberg, before crashing into Button. The accident resulted in Hamilton hitting the wall and puncturing his left rear tire.
Then...He's all but admitted that one season his performance was off because of a chick getting into his head and in another season it was his own teammate that f- - -ked with his mind and as such affected his on track performance. Just a few weeks ago his paranoia had him insinuating the competition had become faster because of "tricks".
Is the guy good? Absolutely. But just the same, for some of us, his retirement from the sport can't come soon enough. I've tried, but he's just not easy to like.
Button ran into Hamilton. Review the footage. Watch the interviews. Button admitted as such.

Relationship problems can affect anyone. They do. In his worst season he was 5th in the WDC.

As far as tricks go...everyone is wondering why the Ferraris are slow again AND speculating that whatever was being done has been removed. It was spoken of in the race broadcast quite often over the weekend.

I quite hope you have a driver that you cheer for!
Cheers-mk
