Default So much for team loyalty then ?

A year after Jensen Button was facing being without a team and being saved by Ross Brawn, winning the world championship title and pedging he would never leave the team he has now announced he is joining McLaren with Lewis Hamilton.
It will be a British team throughout, car and both drivers, the curreny champ and the previous champ racing against each other.
Jensen will get half the pay that Lewis gets.
I just see it as a tactic ....... employ the opposition and give lewis a better chance

He might be a good driver, but Jensen must be as thick as a brick.

The reason Brawn won this year - apart from Jensen - is that they had the best car. He'll probably still make several million this year though, so perhaps he's not that thick.

Buttons not in Hamiltons league as an all round driver, in the same car only one winner for me.

Brawn have been bought by a German company, and have stated that their drivers will all be German, so Jensen was out of a job. Not his decision.
