Jenson Button is a good driver, there is no denying that but his latest successes have been purely down to the fact that Ross Brawn has given him a car that is far faster than any other on the grid. Considering the number of years he has now been in the sport, often with good cars, his previous success rate has been pretty poor.Despite his early wins this season, he cannot be compared in the same league as Hamilton, Massa, Alonso etc. Pure luck has played a large part in his performance so far. It will interesting to see how he performs against the more skilled drivers at Monaco, which is a drivers circuit, as by then their cars will be more competitive. Jenson needs to build a huge lead by then because after Barcelona he will not be able to just rely on the pure speed of the Brawn.
