Button's comments reveal his true genius :-)

very well spotted, i had to think about it at first, i think you mean this quote:
"It's a great idea," Button told BBC Radio 5 live. "It's nice that you get five points over second for winning.

"That's important because we all love winning races. I won six races this year and I got just two more points."

lol :)

So you used to get 10 instead of 8,so that's 25% more for 1st than 2nd. (10/8 = 1.25 ) Now you get 25 instead of 20, so that's err, oh, 25% more for 1st than 2nd. (25/20 = 1.25)

The BBC correspondent even said 'if Lewis Hamilton retires from a couple of races it makes it more difficult for him to catch up'

The revised points system is a step in the right direction but the points should go all the way through the field making all postions meaningful in the race

He was unable to work that out on the spot with a microphone shoved up his nose and his lingerie model girlfriend trying to hustle into the motorhome.

I bet he feels a right fool now.
