In the round-up: Jenson Button reveals he was close to signing for Ferrari around the time his McLaren team mate Lewis Hamilton left the team.

Comment of the day

Which of the seven drivers who raced in F1 last year but don’t have a seat this season deserve to be on the grid again? One driver stands out for @Shadow13:

It baffles me that Hulkenburg is written off by lots of people for not getting a podium. For the majority of seats in F1 solid consistency is more important than the odd spectacular race.

Take Kvyat as an example – he’s a driver that on his day excels – and that’s been shown by the odd podium here and there. For most teams though a driver solidly coming fifth to eighth every race is much better than Kvyat getting a podium once a season but routinely coming 13-14th.
