Will Jenson make it 6 out of 7? He's in P2 after quali this morning, but has more gas than Vettel:

Should be a good race. It's on FOX at 2 PM.

On a side note, you gotta love Barrichello, check out this answer:

Q: (Balazs Vajta - Autosport es Formula) Two questions for Rubens: the first one is you started out not as quick in Q3, you really did your quickest lap on the last lap. Was this due to the hard tyre or pure traffic? And secondly, you and Jenson seem like perfect brothers. After every race you are hand-in-hand but you are second most of the time, so how big is the pressure on you now to beat him finally?

RB: First question; it was a bit of both, it was the tyre, I knew the first lap wasnít going to be the faster one but I had traffic as well. I pushed a little harder on the second lap but I had traffic again, so the third lap was the only one when I could achieve something.
You know, as much as I love Jenson as a friend, I hate him as a driver, so itís very, very simple. We get on very well. I think itís a fantastic pairing for the team. We are working well together and as you said, if you take Q2 for example Iím in front of him and then Q3 he was able to do the job. Today I couldnít say I had a problem with this or that. You never know what the tyres might have done for me but with me itís my determination. People might have this feeling that because I was second to Schumacher, that I will finish second to him, but I will fight him very, very hard. This time we work well for the team, there are no choices, no sad options like I used to have at Ferrari and this time I just have to conquer and I hope it starts tomorrow.

That was actually quite an elegant pass! Things are REALLY bad when Nelson Piquet laps you!
What a freakin' year for Button! Just to put it in perspective, the last time a driver was so dominant was in 1994, when a certain Michael Schumacher won the first 6 out of 7 races, and placed 2nd on the remaining race. He then went on to win seven driver championships. This year Button has won 6 out of the first 7 and placed 3rd on the remaining race (China).
And to top it all off, the next race is his home GP, at Silverstone. Wanna bet he wins that one too?
I loved his radio transmission back to the crew at the end of the race, when he told them: "You've built me an absolute beast of a car, guys!"

you are right, elegant pass, not chop and slash like Hamilton used to do to everyone, he's been awfully quiet this year, or is it that no one wants to talk to him, the worse thing for him is that the driver in the limelight is also a Brit, from what you see on TV it's seems like his father is even more arrogant than he is / was I think this season is great, now Hamilton knows what it's like to have to compete against a far superior car. In fairness to him, the McLaren car looked like the setup was really off this race. Did they hire some UAW workers?

Vettel will have his day and hopefully it won't that as many years as it took Button.

UAW workers are fighting the bankruptcy deal.

Both Ferrari and Mercedes are way off this year. The prevailing theory is that last year they were so concentrated on the championship, that was decided right up to the last race, that they neglected development on the 2009 cars; hence, they are paying a big price.

Remember Button's car has a Mercedes engine.

It's not just about engines, this year the big change was in the aerodynamics. The funny thing is that last years losers are this years dominant teams. Thus, the losing teams had a big jump in developing/testing the cars to the new regulations, whereas, Ferrari, Mercedes, Renault were caught up in the 2008 season. Its very obvious in the results. Let see what happens next year when the big powerhouses have had the time to develop their cars to the fullest.
