Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton dismiss Mark Webber’s suggestions of messy spat – Button said that they have so far developed a solid.
After some racing success in Australia driving Formula Ford and Formula Holden, Webber moved to the United Kingdom in to further his motorsport career. Webber began a partnership with fellow Australian Paul Stoddart, at that time owner of the European Racing Formula team, which eventually took them both into Formula One when Stoddart bought the Minardi team. Webber made his Formula One debut in , scoring Minardi ‘s first points in three years at his and Stoddart’s home race.
After his first season, Jaguar took him on as lead driver. During two years with the generally uncompetitive team, Webber qualified on the front two rows of the grid several times and outperformed his teammates. By the end of , Webber had scored eight podiums, including another victory in Brazil. His eight podiums in compares to only two podiums in the first seven years of his career.
He added ten more podiums in , including victories in Spain, Monaco, Britain and Hungary. Webber finished the season in third place having led for a long period, losing out to teammate Sebastian Vettel in the final race of the season. Webber added another race victory in the Brazilian Grand Prix, as he once again finished third behind champion Vettel and runner-up Jenson Button. Webber partnered Vettel again in the season, outperforming him in the early season and looked to be a major title contender but fell away with no wins in the second half of the season after two in the Monaco and British Grand Prix.
He finished the season in sixth position.
British driver Jenson Button in Turkey refused to admit he is already thinking about improving the terms of his current contract. An engineer was wrong to tell Lewis Hamilton that his teammate Jenson Button would not overtake during the recent Turkish grand prix. Favourite added temporarily.
THE latest England v Australia sporting clash takes place at the Nurburgring today, and Mark Webber believes not even rain will save Jenson.
And who better to curate our list than Hall of Fame journalist David Tremayne, who has been on the ground at more than half of all of the F1 races run to date. In the end it resulted in a sensational last-lap triumph for Jenson Button, who turned a series of disasters — including taking off team-mate Lewis Hamilton — into a sodden afternoon of reparation to McLaren. The rain was so heavy that the event was started behind the Safety Car, and no sooner had it begun to dry out than much heavier rain fell.
As they completed lap 7, Hamilton pulled out to repass Button, who failed to see him and moved to his left, accidentally punting his team-mate into the pit wall and retirement. As the Safety Car was deployed again, Button was given a drive-through penalty for going too fast behind the original one. Vettel soon pulled away again as Kobayashi held off Massa and Schumacher, who switched places on lap Button, meanwhile, was charging back from last place after having to make an unscheduled stop after a collision on the 37th lap.
On intermediates, then slicks, he had challenged Alonso until the Spaniard spun off and beached his Ferrari. Heidfeld then ran into the back of Kobayashi, losing his front wing and triggering a fifth Safety Car period on the 56th lap. The race went green again after five laps, and second-placed Schumacher found himself under intense pressure from Webber and Button.

The 3. Short but lethal showers are passing through the area this weekend and one spell in the middle of qualifying saw half-a-dozen drivers spinning and left them uncertain about whether to use dry or slick tyres as the rain went off and on. In warm weather the track would suit Button ideally as it has many more braking points than Silverstone where he was also damaged by the weather a fortnight ago in the British Grand Prix, finishing sixth. The Red Bulls use their tyres better in the cooler conditions but they are also quicker when it rains, although the Brawn team believe that they have narrowed that gap.
Button needs a clear track so that he can travel at speed without hindrance of traffic and get hard on the brakes to generate heat if he is to have a chance of winning. To do that he will need to be ahead of Webber and Barrichello at the start which will require a careful strategy and a bit of luck and skill. It is going to be a very interesting race, probably wet-dry-wet. We will need a little bit of luck.
Even second or third place with Vettel behind would be good news for Button, who would extend his point lead over the young German, but he will also want to beat Barrichello — second in the title race but still 23 points off his team-mate. Webber, who met up with Ponting at Wimbledon last week, believes his time has come after races, three runners-up finishes this season and four podiums.

Professor Steven Huck, head of the Economics department at UCL and expert at understanding incentives has said the idea is flawed, and that the system ‘only incentivises the top teams’. Murray Walker reckons the F1 race stewards’ decisions were the biggest disappointment in this year’s F1 World Championship, however, he’s confident the FIA will resolve the issues. The season saw strange decisions from the race stewards that led to suggestions of bias towards Ferrari and against Lewis Hamilton as the McLaren driver was handed some rather strange penalties.
Not only was he penalised in Belgium despite F1 race director Charlie Whiting saying his move to hand Kimi Raikkonen back the position he took was “okay” but later in the season he also got a drive-through penalty for pushing the Finn wide at the start of the race. Fernando Alonso is remaining tight-lipped about the possibility of switching from Renault to Ferrari in time for the F1 season.
With the news that the Spanish bank, Santander, are set to swap to Ferrari in rumours are once again doing the rounds claiming that the Spaniard could be following suit. Asked whether Ferrari was in his future, Alonso said: “A quick answer to that would not be the right answer. Jenson Button is confident that the regulations could see Honda once again return to the podium—and perhaps even the top step.
Furthermore, the Brit reckons these rules could play into Honda’s hands, perhaps even yielding the team’s first win since the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Written by Matthew Clayton Published on Webber was unstoppable at Monaco in It was the start of something big — since, the team has won four drivers’ and constructors’ championships and 50 Grands Prix, the most recent of which coming in Belgium at the hands of Daniel Ricciardo. Vettel splashed to success in Shanghai in ‘ But as the rain poured down in China for round three, the Bulls found their wings, Vettel cantering to a second career win, Webber achieving a career-best second, and Button the best of the rest nearly three-quarters of a minute adrift.
A team that had managed just three podiums in its first four years was off and running. Both the Australian and Vettel ended up in the team’s pool at the Energy Station after the race, and the drivers decided to jump in the harbour soon afterwards. It might have been Webber’s one wrong move of the day. Vettel stood tallest in Abu Dhabi in Title-deciders don’t get much more tense than this. Alonso finished seventh, Webber eighth — and Vettel cruised to victory to become the youngest world champion in F1 history.
Remarkably, it was the only time he’d led the championship standings all season. Vettel’s pace in Singapore was jaw-dropping. A mid-race safety car caused by Ricciardo crashing his Toro Rosso saw Vettel stay out rather than pit for new tyres, and when the race resumed, he tore off at a rate two seconds a lap faster than anyone else.
