It's Formula One's age-old question: man or machine? And in the case of Jenson Button, it's a pertinent one.

The truth is that in F1 the car is the decisive factor. I couldn't put a percentage on it but if pushed I would say 80 per cent car, 20 per cent driver.
Does it currently matter? This combination of driver + machine MUST be doing SOMETHING right with a P1/PF1/3/1 season so far (two Poles & 1 Fastest lap). Even if he had to wear an ABBA-looking driving suit and an EltonJohn-looking visor: winning is winning.
Put Lewis Hamilton in a Force India and they still wouldn't win a race, although they might do a little bit better than they are now.
No worries - the BBC would still drool all over their favorite little sock-monkey-puppet-looking driver.
