Button wont win an all out rain race or a race that starts dry and ends wet.beelsebob wrote:Indeed, it's no coincidence that of the two races that have been seriously messed up by rain/drying/raining etc this year, Button has won both.marcush. wrote:the undebatable fact is that Button gets it right more often than others in these coinditions .
The race was not a lottery .Allen misses the point of on track mistakes committed by all the top runners .I have lost count of off track excursions of Alonso who just went a notch too aggressive into this race .
Same with Hamilton .You cannot af´ford to spin and have drive throughs in a race you want to win-usually.
In pure wet conditions, I'll bet on Hamilton any day, but in semi-wet/drying/raining etc conditions, it's Button all the way.
Where he wins is when the pits have too many unclear decisions.
Ie when there is chaos. His experience allows him to watch others self destruct, and i don't even mean the drivers, i'm including the teams as well.
Hamilton's spin didn't really do any more damage to his race.
He still caught Button. It's not really something you can't afford to do in a damp race.
What you can't afford to do is go off, or mess up a pit stop.
From now on, every one should simply copy Button. That's the only solution.
Even if Hamilton is leading, he should let button pit first then follow him.
