Jenson Button - My Fake Diary
Saturday, 25 July 2009
Another Saturday and another qualy has come around again. Good news is me dad's got his lucky pink shirt back from the laundry this afternoon. If I don't win at Hungary this weekend then all I can think of is that the cleaners might have put a hex on it.
Onto more serious matters. This Hungarian GP could prove to be an important turning point for us Brawn Boys. Boss Rawn has given Barry Chello and me his "blah blah blah blah" known by its technical name as the post-race technical debriefing.
If the Red Bull team are able to show they have improved their car enough to compete in hot races, then we will be forced to follow 'team orders' - not officially, obviously, but on the basis that "everybody knows what's best for the team," wink, wink! Again, somebody asked for Barry Chello's autograph but were disappointed when they told him, "Didn't you used to be Kelsey Grammer from 'Frazier'?" I bought him a 'Mr. Happy' t-shirt to cheer him up, but me thinks he might call it a day at the end of this campaign.
There's been a certain amount of disharmony between the drivers heading into the race on account of the youngest ever F1 debutant, Jaime Alguenotshavingyet. It used to be me, so I know what the poor lad's going through. Jaime's a member of the 'Red Bull family' and Webbo has never been keen on racing with 'bloody kids'. "I've never been a big fan of Formula 1 being a learning school but it seems like it is these days," he said. "When you arrive in F1 you should be ready. It's not a place to learn," he added. By the way, his team-mate Vetters, was the 'bloody kid' who robbed Webbo of a chance of his first F1 victory in 2007.
Kaikkers fancies his chances this weekend at what might be Ferrari's last hurrah before they get down to serious work on the 2010 car in time for Al Onso next season - he told me he's defo going to Ferrari.
Hammers is playing down his chances of a podium place after the McLaren team improved his car by 0.001 in one major quantum leap forward in Germany. Lewy thinks this is his biggest chance of a win, but having endured a season of frustration, he says he won't be drawn into predictions. So he wrote them down and sealed the envelope - too quick for me to have a peek!
There can be no excuses this weekend as I look to rediscover me winning habit in the heat of Hungary. They've already taken points from me in the last two races - that is about ……… anyway too many.
Wish me luck tomorrow me little chocolate buttons.
Jense (The Magic Button)
