Anyone else getting sick of the whinging?
That's an ironic line given the nature of the post and the number of "I hate this driver, I hate that driver..." threads we get on this site. :-)
You know, I do believe that is a 'pec'...
Yes, please stop.
I do now have a higher degree of appreciation for Hamilton though
Can you imagine the grief Hamilton would be getting both here and in the press if roles were reversed and it was Button who lapped him.
I don't think Button was whinging, I think he was baffled and looking as much at his own performance as the car. Hamilton perhaps is more likely to find fault in others.
I had been surprised at Button's regular 'whinging' over the radio to the team, but the more I have listened to it, the more I have realised that it isn't whinging so much as very plain and brief description of the problems he is having. When it gets repeated a lot by Sky and the BBC, it comes across as whinging.
Obviously it is not easy to get your point across on radio when you're sitting in a very loud racing car and trying to lap at ridiculous speeds with a heartrate of 150+ for the entire session, and I think it's just the nature of Jenson's particular voice and the fact he is pretty much yelling into the radio which makes it sounds like he is whinging, compared to Hamilton/Webber/other native English-speaking drivers. Listen to Jenson in an interview and his voice has the same qualities (not a cunning linguist, so not sure of the right terminology) when he's laughing that sound a bit whiny when he's on the radio and having problems.
Listen to Vettel or Alonso when the car's not to their liking and they sound much the same as Button.
