in a discussion about Button I jokingly wrote a list of things that usually come up when people bash JB. Marklar came up with the idea of writing such lists for all drivers in a similar manner.
Disclaimer: this thread is intended to be fun, light-hearted and amusing - I do not wish to see serious and heated arguments and any kind of denigration around here, please. In case I sense anything like that, I will immediately ask the moderators to lock the thread at once.
So, to avoid this, I would suggest that we try and stick to "bashing" our favourite drivers. Anyone who knows me also knows that I've been a diehard fan of JB, so here's my list on him: an unworthy WDC, one of the worst in the history of the sport; a smug playboy; championship won only because he had it incredibly easy during the first few GPs driving a rocketship Brawn; Lewis destroyed him in terms of pace but was much-much more unfortunate with reliability; 2011 is asterisked because Lewis was depressed; even the old, slow Barrichello outperformed him in the second half of 2009; the contract saga of 2004-2005; 2011 Canada is the worst GP win ever because he crashed into Lewis and Fernando on purpose; he shouldn't even have been given a seat after 2001; he stayed several years too late and isn't missed from the grid at all.
Plus an additional one from sopa: Whitmarsh and Button had a lovefest, which eventually led to the downfall of McLaren in 2013.
I'm planning to do similar lists on Prost, Nico and Mika
Let the fun begin, and once again, guys: please, be a good egg, play along nicely.
