    Button signs for three more years at Honda

    Trouble is we don't know how long they've been nagging him to extend his contract, and to be honest I can't see any other team paying much for Jenson on his recent form.
    And what about the neat costume - I'm sure Jenson wouldn't want to be seen in anything else :-)

    I imagine it's down to Ross convincing him that things are going to get better.

    I actually reckon that Honda looked a damn sight more promising than they have for a long time. Rubens seemed to be able to hold off Kimi pretty well although that may well have been down to the fuel load.

    Ross said before the weekend that he wouldn't get involved and would watch and see what's wrong with the way the team work. I think all he knows now is that basically nothing works and he'll have to change just about everything. Worst thing was that the lollipop man who screwed it all up had apparently never done the job before. I doubt if he'll do it again either :-)

    • Yes the Ross Brawn factor has to have something to do with JB's decision.... but I think there may be more to it than meets the eye......... Rubinho may finally retire at the end of this season..... so outright number 1 status could be on offer......... and Ross may have a few stealth signings up his sleeve........ designers and aerodynamisists to name but a few.......... oh and don't forget the megga bucks of the Honda corporation....... they have just had a re-shuffle of management....... maybe JB knows what is coming up...... When you think of these options then signing now does not seem so silly.
