Button Calls the Tune


Jenson Button was even more enthusiastic than usual after his brilliant win in Melbourne

It may be that some cynics had suggested his fine wins last year were a result of Ross Brawn's tactics in a similar manner to the suggestion of some that Schumacher's wins were all due to the same man's tactical naus.

Whatever the case, Button himself, the team manager and Button's engineer all confirmed that it was Button alone who called the early tyre change while the track was still wet.

This brave move, although initially making the car very difficult to control, came good and Button's foresight contributed to an historic win today.

It was good too to see Robert Kubica bring home the Renault second and in many ways was reminiscent of the days of Rene Arnoux who often scored points on days when Renaults were not generally accepted as being competitive.

In contrast to Button, Massa's engineer Smedley was telling him over the radio when to brake and accelerate and Hamilton was called in for a tyre change which proved to be a poor choice. Hamilton finally realised that the cars ahead of him would not be stopping again after a tenacious charge to catch up.
