    BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2009

    Good & fair points..... However, i dont think Button was in a team on the brink of going under. They were actually a newly formed team and had a better car than all of the others, hence why Brawn won the team prize as well as the driver prize..... I am not trying to take anything away from the guy, he's done amazingly, however, i feel that a lot of his achievement was down to the mechanics etc. behind him who built his car.
    Another point i feel is a major factor in my decision, is how many individual races did Button ACTUALLY win this season? I may be wrong and please correct me if i am but as far as i am aware it was not that many....
    In my opinion Hamilton was more deserving of it last year than Button is this year......and Hamilton didnt win it.......
    Giggs has perhaps been more deserving of it and been more involved in previous years....but you are forgetting that it is THIS year that he is setting all of the records that will probably never EVER be achieved again..... Surely that counts for something in this particular year?
