Possibly one of the most Crucial Race this season. Qualifying laid down a wild card in terms of Nico Hulkenberg.

Im gunning for Ferrari as Always!! May the Best man Win!!

Jenson Button escapes armed attack in Brazil

Here's what we know. According to The Press Association, reigning Formula One World Champion Jenson Button

has survived an armed attack on the vehicle in which he, his father,

trainer and manager were being transported back to their hotel in Sao

Paulo, Brazil after Saturday's qualifying session for the Brazilian

Grand Prix. Button was fortunately riding in an armored vehicle provided

by his team, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes, that was piloted by a police

driver trained in avoidance techniques.

According to Button himself, the attack occurred while his vehicle was

moving slowly past a shanty town in Sao Paulo. Six armed attackers,

reportedly brandishing machine guns, attacked the vehicle, though Button

doesn't mention whether shots were fired or his vehicle was hit. He

has, however, praised his driver, who he says "bounced off about five

cars" while ferrying the party from harm's way. That's quite a

compliment coming from the reigning World Champion.

Vodafone McLaren Mercedes also provided Button's teammate Lewis Hamilton

with an armored vehicle and trained police driver. The precautions were

reportedly taken on account of the high number of gun crimes in Sao

Paulo. We're not sure if that's standard procedure for all F1 teams

visiting Brazil this weekend, but we bet it will be in the future. Thanks to everyone for the tips!

It'll be a travesty if Alonso wins the WDC' date=' everything he does is tainted by association

with less than sporting behaviour.[/quote']

 

Formula 1 drivers are supposed to be competitve. Sporting behaviour or not, atleast Alonso isn't a corporate puppet like lewis and Jenson button are, holding hands together... Remember ayrton and prost's rivalry??

Are you watching the same championship as me? Alonso is only in the position he is in today because Massa was told to let him through a few races back, I repeat, it will be travesty if this petulant cretin leaves Abu Dhabi tomorrow with the WDC.

I couldn't give a fig about Hamilton and Button, they aren't the issue, but the very thing you attack them for is what put Alonso in the pound seats for the race tomorrow. Ferrari told Massa to pull over and that's what he did, sounds very corporate puppet to me. BornFree2010-11-12 18:25:50
