Jenson is on top form - but it is more to do with Lewis Hamilton IMO.
Lewis' problem is that he can't comprehend that Jenson is beating him - ironically much like Alonso when he met Hamilton!
Lewis has blamed the team, strategy, stewards, tyres, and his inner circle. But the fact is he cannot drive a GP distance as quick as Button. Rather than look inside he is casting around for excuses.
I notice he had his improvised "circle of trust", with Nicole and his mum with him in Melbourne - mind every shot of Scherzinger I saw she had a face like a slapped ar5e too!
It's not just importing people into the race as Jenson said to the BBC. Jenson has his dad and Jessica at the races but it is not by design per se, it is just how it works best for them all. Lewis is still trying too hard in this respect. It is just the thing to blame at the moment.
I am more and more convinced that Lewis is not a smart driver. We know he is not Prost - but he's not Senna either. I think he is more like Alesi - just a McLaren trained and perfectly developed version (like Alesi may have become had he gone to Williams instead of Ferrari).
It is becoming clear that Lewis doesn't know why he is quick. He just drives flat out and relies on the team for nouse - who he then blasts if it all goes wrong.
The "no interviews on the grid" thing is a good example. If you know what makes you quick, then you have nothing to fear. See Button and Vettel in laconic mood in interviews. Alonso is shielded a bit more but when he does give interviews he seems pretty straight forward. Lewis seems to be stumbling around in the dark hoping he is doing what he needs to be quick.
Where it has gone wrong for him is that unlike 2007, Jenson did not come out fighting like Fernando did. The Hamiltons extracted every bit of advantage from Fernando imploding, and Ron's paternal attitude towards Lewis, Spygate et al.
Come 2011, Jenson already had the team on his side when things got tough for Lewis, and Dad wasn't there to screw McLaren over. I also think Whitmarsh saw what happened in 2007 to Ron and won't let it happen on his shift.
I truly think Lewis needs to deflate his ego - and admit to himself that he doesn't know why it is going wrong. Only then can he look around and realise what is required to build himself into the driver he thought he was all along.
Back to Jenson: Jenson had a nightmare career after 2000 and won arguably the luckiest championship in recent years. And he knew how lucky he had been in the run up to Brazil '09. That race day was the day Jenson became a top driver - when he shook off his past and the pressure it was bringing him. He's been on another level ever since.
It seems he does not have the ego to rely on, only getting calmer and more confident with success. If he wins a few early this season I predict his rivals should look out - as with every good result he becomes more decisive and laser-guided in the car.
It's great to watch! - and outside of WF1 I am unashamedly in his corner
