Men of the Moment. No Season!

October 19, 2009

Jenson Button

It’s been a long time coming, specially after being labeled a Playboy and stuck with contract issues more than racing. Even Flavio Briatore didn’t have too much faith in him when he picked then test driver Alonso over him.

Proved them all wrong by equaling Shumi‘s record of 6 out of 7 Race wins in the start of this season, and winning the Driver’s Championship despite losing his way mid season.

The Brains behind Brawn. Schumi’s first race winning engineer who went on to bring back the glory days for Ferrari. Rescued the Honda team, when they were pulling out simply because he believed they had a Race Winning Car.

It’s really something to put out a new car, and have it win the first Grand Prix of the season in Australia, but another to win the Constructor’s Championship in it’s debut year, and to have one of your drivers win the Driver’s championship, along with the other possibly finishing 2nd.

I’m glad we made the drive from Hikka to Galle (despite being worn out after a Jungle trek, sea bath in Una and stuffing our bellies with Prawn-tomato-onion-garlic Rotti in Hikka) to catch the race at the Pedlars Inn.

PS : With Jenson’s win, looks like Jessica Michibata (Button’s GF) will take pole over Nicole Scherzinger (last year’s winner Hammi’s GF). And for the ladies who think F1 is all about cars going round and round, he’s not bad on the eyes too.

    I think Jensen Button is Chris Martin when he’s not fronting Coldplay. I seriously can’t tell the two apart! No?

    eh? Darwin! there are very clear distinctions i think! maybe its the blonde facial hair thats similar?

    haha ChaarMax – Sherzinger can put her clothes back on. I don’t know what the fuss is about her at all!

    @Darwin : Chris Martin = Jenson Button? Hmm.. Nah. 😀

    @confab : When you say `she’s got nothing on her`, do you mean it literally?
