His head is not cubeheady enough to be another DC, but I know what you mean.
I seriously doubt he'll ever be an F1 champ, so there is a resemblance with DC. He may win a race here and there, but he's not championship material who could put together an entire season's campaign to win the title. There are some much hungrier and more aggressive contenders who I'd put in my favorites column.

Got to say I fear that Button will only ever be a nearly man. He's like Barrichello, although he was always in Schumacher's shadow, when he had a race winning car. Sure Button can drive, but like Herbert, David Coulthard and Irvine, he doesn't have that special something to secure a whole championship.

I don't think he has the bottle to be at the top. Like what DD said he might win a few races here and there but i don't think he will ever have his hands on DC trophy. Also, there are more talented drivers than him and if he did have the talent he wouldn't be driving a Honda powered car, that's for sure.

They always say that the will do better and they never do, it will take a good few years to play with the Ferrari, Renault, McLaren boys. This is not going to be their year.

Agreed, it takes more than just money to make it in F1.

Yeah, see, e.g., Toyota - lots of dough, not much to show for though...

Honda are alright I think. A solid outfit though nothing to get excited about. They should have probably stuck with supplying the engines rather than do the whole thing. I'm definitely more excited about BMW Sauber, they seem to be in an expansion phase, a breakout year maybe?

They have got Ralf... :roll: Which let's face it is like building an amazingly aerodynamic car without an engine, and asking an elf to push! :twisted:
